Jam 'Ole Run 2010
Every October a group of ex working boats re-enact the coal run from Atherstone to the Kearley and Tonge jam factory in Southall.
We moored at Norton Junction to let them pass. The first three came by fairly promptly.
But then we had a long wait for the other half. When they did turn up we learned that a cow had jumped into the cut in front of Renfrew near Barby and it had taken an hour to get it back on dry land.
But we can reveal here that Corona and Victoria did not start at Atherstone, they only joined the run at Braunston.
