Working boats of
the UK Waterways
Cadbury's of Bournville
Cadburys operated their own fleet of boats from the setting up of their canalside factories at both Bournville, Frampton and Knighton for the delivery of raw materials and collection of milk from surrounding farms. They gave up their own boats in 1929 and relied on Severn & Canal and FMC for the transportation needs of the company.
For a fuller history of the company see Narrowboat magazine. Summer 2006 edition.
