Who are we?
Ruth & Richard Chamberlain ~ liveaboard boaters since 2007
Established in 2013 and originally purely a gift shop in the bow of our old butty boat Echoes, we travelled the canal system, during the warmer months selling Ruth’s hand painted traditional ‘Roses & Castles’ canal art giftwares.
2015, we began selling small amounts of prepacked solid fuels during the winter whilst the gift shop was packed away.
Demand grew, until the summer of 2017, when the opportunity arose to buy historic Admiral Class narrowboats Mountbatten & Jellicoe.
Today, we operate them as a working pair selling fuels and running a gift shop from butty boat Jellicoe. We mainly cover the Llangollen / Shropshire Union/ Staffs & Worcs Canals.
We utilise the canal network to carry goods for other companies, whilst still maintaining a regular fuel delivery service up and down the canals.
Our summer sees us travelling to various prebooked canal festivals, throughout the canal system.
Our Calendar tab gives more details.
Come and see us if you are in the area!
