Boat yard
Mirfield Battyeford Boat Yard

Work and pleasure, I doubt that the old barge men would be able to comprehend  the changes that have taken place in the canal over the last 50 years, from the wide wooden working coal barges to the narrow steel pleasure craft of today.
This view of Battyeford Boatyard serves to illustrate the change of use from a working canal into a place of recreation and pleasure.

You can find out more about barges and their building in the Made In Mirfield section HERE.
