Vlog 209: Coalfinger

A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of spending a day aboard the fuel boat and butty of “Jules Fuels” on the Grand Union canal. The day started – early! – with loading of supplies and then off we went to deliver to customers south of Milton Keynes.

  1. Congratulations on your videos that I am now quite hooked on. Special praise for your clear explanations of the particular manoevers of the fuel barges.

  2. Very interesting….I’m having a ball watching your vlogs
    Great lady Jule….

  3. I think this was my favorite vlog of them all. Very interesting to see something going on today that was going on 100 years ago in much the same way. Nice people, great community.

  4. This vlog was great. Loved learning about working boats and seeing a bit of history preserved.
