Front Cover: The W.J. Yarwood & Sons’-built motor boat Wye heads north on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal towards Blackburn on a cold winter’s day. The craft was one of three built by the company in 1947 for Canal Transport Ltd, set up in 1930 to take over carrying on the waterway, and the subject of this issue’s Famous Fleets feature.
