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 and 1960s the Severn was a busy commercial highway, with many small craft trading far inland to Worcester and Stourport.
