Tooley's Boatyard

Tooley's Boatyard has been around since 1790´s and is a historic boatyard on the Oxford Canal in the centre of the town of Banbury, Oxfordshire. It is the oldest working dry dock in the Inland Waterways. It was established to build and repair the wooden horse-drawn narrow boats used for travelling up and down the newly constructed Oxford Canal network. The boatyard launched Tom Rolt's 'Cressy' onto the canals in 1939 and his book "Narrowboat" speaks about the formation of the Inland Waterways Association which ultimately led to the preservation of the canal network. Today, the boatyard includes two scheduled ancient monuments - an historic dry dock and a smithy.
