  ALPERTON, with her motor the DARLEY, carried cargoes from Birmingham to London until 1948 when British Waterways took over. By the 1950s, she lay disused in the Wendover arm of the canal until the Union Canal Company bought her for carrying and use on camping holidays. The wooden cabin was restored in 1972. Unconverted in early yellow and blue livery.¬†ALPERTON¬†
