Jasmine, BCN Brownhills, Any information or history?

Hi all,

We have recently bought a beautiful but neglected narrowboat called Jasmine and we would love to find some history.

In some old surveys from the 90s it says that she was built in 1964 by Graham Parker at Norton Canes Docks as a direct copy of a BCN tug with the same name, after hours of searching we can not find a BCN tug named Jasmine or any information about our boat, until I found a post on here that suggests she may have been built in 1961 by John Humphries who was a Director of Lew-Way in Brownhills.

Here is a link to the post that i found

In the 2nd video on this post you can see what looks like our boat,


Here are some pictures of Jasmine as she is today ready to be renovated, we have some old negatives of the original sign writing that i will upload soon.

If anyone has any information or old pictures we would be very grateful.

Was moored in Aylesbury basin for a good while in the 80's/ early 90's I think...  Can' t remember the owners but if you contact Bryan Barnes ( Aylesbury Canal Soc Chairman ) via the ACS website he will probably have some details.


ETA Derek R may remember the boat as I think Yarmouth was there at about the same time.
