Raleigh is a 71ft by 7ft Trad. Raleigh was thought to originally be a Bantock horse drawn working boat constructed in wood & iron in the 1800’s. She was purchased by her current owners from The Stourbridge Arm and previously to that she was a house boat in London. In the past 25 years she has undergone an extensive renovation by her current owners. She had a new steel bottom & cabin which was completed by Ken Field in 1997, the knees are original.
