I think it was me that mentioned Tom Foxon's book Following The Trade. This is the last of a trilogy covering Mr Foxon's experiences as a professional boatman, both working for others as well as being an owner boatman. The references to a couple of LMS boats and their trade to Worcester are in passing and are probably not worth buying the book for. The book is however an interesting insight into Mr Foxon's carrying activities as well as the latter days of carrying, especially if read in conjunction with his Anderton For Order and No. 1 :captain: 

 

edit - add the word being

 

edit 2 - you are welcome to borrow my copy of Tom Foxon's Following The Trade, but I will want it back.

Or, if Newark is closer I have one yoj can borrow. Buy will be leaving and heading upstream on 1 April.
