Barging through Europe


The journey of 'Thomas Porter' through Europe

This website records the journey of SS Thomas Porter, a 1927 Sheffield Humber Keel barge, built in Beverly in Yorkshire, through the canals and waterways of Europe. It is written as a record of the journey for family and friends, but hopefully will also provide useful information, based on personal experience, for others interested in this wonderful way of life.
