Talk: My Life on the Severn

In this fascinating talk about his working life on the River Severn, Chris Witts tells of his time as a lad in the 1960s on tanker barges, through to the 1990s working on grain barges. During the 1950s & 1960s the Severn was a busy commercial highway with many small craft trading far inland to Worcester and Stourport. The talk is illustrated with photographs as well as 2 short films which cover Chris’s 40 years of experience on the Severn.
