Narrowboat Homes

Some of the narrowboats that were once part of a vital commercial transportation network have survived as unique places to live or rent for a vacation. Approximately 6,000 narrowboats are registered as permanent homes on Britain’s waterway system either in semi-permanent moorings or continuously cruising.

A narrowboat is a particular type of canal boat, built to fit the narrow locks of the United Kingdom. The UK’s canal system provided a nationwide transport network during the Industrial Revolution, but with the advent of the railways, commercial canal traffic gradually diminished and the last regular long-distance transportation of goods disappeared in 1970.
