Midlands & Coast Canal Carriers Ltd

A leading but short-lived carrier whose boats were mainly seen on the Shropshire Union Canal.

 

(m) – motor boat. Registrations dated prior to the entry into the fleet relate to the previous owner.
 
Several of the Shropshire Union Railways & Canal Company boats were acquired firstly by N. Hingley & Sons Ltd and subsequently transferred to Midlands & Coast but the exact date of this transfer is somewhat conjectural.
 
This list omits a few early boats acquired from other carriers that served for only a short time in the fleet.
