Dry Cargo Barges on the Humber Waterways

This book is the final part of Mike Taylor’s three-volume series on the craft used on the Humber’s inland waterways. The first volume focused on tugs and towing barges, while the second covered tanker barges. This last volume tells the story of dry cargo barges that operated on the Humber waterways for centuries.

These barges were essential for transporting large quantities of goods and played a significant role in the thriving trading network on the Humber. Despite the arrival of roads and railways, the waterways continued to prosper until the use of water transport eventually declined. This detailed history provides a wealth of illustrations covering dry cargo transport development on the Humber Waterway, from unpowered craft to self-propelled vessels and push-towed craft. In addition, the book covers keels, sloops, pull-towed vessels, and motorised dumb barges.
