The canals have never been more popular, but David Blagrove, a coal merchant operating a fleet of historic working narrowboats based at Stoke Bruerne, introduces us to the canal and to canal life as the pleasure visitors could never see it. We see David and friends at a fabulous music evening in a traditional canalside pub. We see him train three boaters to handle a loaded motor boat and butty. David presents a unique and unmissable tale for canal lovers everywhere.
