It was with some trepidation that I deleted the old coalboat.co.uk website to begin making this site. I have had to learn to use a different website building programme to that I used previously, and have found it challenging. I expect it is an age thing. I hope that you find it easy to use and worth the effort of looking.

Anyhow, here we are and I’m reasonably pleased with the result. 

As many of you will be aware, Jenny and I sold our coal business a couple of years ago, and subsequently sold our boat “Roach” too. This meant that I needed something to do, mainly to earn some beer tokens. I have been working part time for the coal-merchant who bought our business, but have now decided that lugging coal sacks and gas bottles is for the younger generation. 

Over the course of my travels aboard Roach, I took many photographs. These photographs now form the basis of this new venture. I decided to digitally manipulate the pictures to create (in my view) more pleasing pictures worthy of hanging up on the wall, and hopefully, worth purchasing.  


Fine art

These images are variously available as mounted prints and greetings cards. I have also added four designs of Christmas cards. The button below leads directly to our shop page.
