Dave Tipping and Victoria Hignell operated Otley together with their butty Cygnus selling painted ware and fenders throughout the summer months, and carrying coal for us on Otley through the winter. They carried a significant tonnage over a few years, including a loose load of coal tipped in at Tardebigge New Wharf on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal in 2002

 Cygnus was sold a few years ago, and Otley, still in the ownership of Dave and Vic, is now converted.
