You have one from the Yorkshire Film Archive, but they have several more if you search for 'canal', including some really good sections on S&SYN, A&CN traffic and the 1774 Bicentenary of Bingley 5-rise.

Is it worth noting films The Bargee and Painted Boats as a sub-set. Also Idle Women, the BBC TV film held by BFI. They all have some interesting footage.

and takes me back to how working parties used to be.

I better not convert my cine films of Wey & Arun working parties in the late 70's/early 80's into video then.

Thanks Tim, it was great to see Dirty Weekend, I haven't seen it since the seventies. There are lots of familiar (to me) faces on it, lots of whom I still see, and takes me back to how working parties used to be.

Absolutely! The 70s at Marple is before my time navvying, but there were a few faces there I recognised too.

I think the Health and Safety Bod would have a few words to say about some of those practices today!

Sadly neither of these appears to be available to watch online, am sure that they were once but I cannot find them now.
