About Carina

ABOUT CARINA our historic narrowboat

CARINA was built by Yarwoods and first registered in 1935. Working on the Grand Union this ‘Butty’ ie no engine was towed by motor boat LIBRA. Falling into disuse in the nineties, C&RT then British Waterways and Centro found some finance to restore Carina in Stourbridge as a floating bicycle workshop for CycleChain. We took over Carina in late 2012. See www.hnbc.org.uk/boats/carina for more history.
