Huddersfield Narrow Canal
First horse-drawn boat through Stalybridge (1)
The working boat Olive was the first boat to be horse-drawn through Stalybridge since the canal's restoration. Olive was a former railway boat built in 1929. She is owned by Ed Mortimer who is hoping to restore her cabin. Olive was crewed by members of the Horseboating Society and towed by Bonny the Boat Horse, driven by Sue Day.
