New soft back. RRP £11.99. Forging Ahead is a fascinating look at Tooley's Historic Boatyard in Banbury. This almost hidden jewel in the north Oxfordshire market town has been a well known feature of the Oxford Canal for the past 240 years. The author, Matthew Armitage, has been the director of the business for the past 16 years. Using archive material as well as his own intimate knowledge of the site, he described the yard's tumultuous and challenging past. With a wealth of illustrations and first-hand accounts of the Tooleys themselves, Forging Ahead will be of great interest to historians and waterways enthusiasts alike. pp. 138.
