John Lower, from the Chesterfield Canal Trust will describe a “living archaeology” project re-creating a 70 foot horse-drawn, sail-driven narrowboat to a design last built in the 1930s  and unique to the Chesterfield canal. Volunteers using only contemporary hand tools and seven tons of oak and larch put in four years of hard work. This is the story from the origin of the project through to the adventures of the vessel so far.
