DVD ‘The Restoration of Centaur’


DVD Centaur

Simon North tracks down the remaining evidence of a different time…. when the Thames sailing barge was king and the barge building trade was booming for the Cann brothers of Harwich.
The Thames Sailing barge Centaur was built by them in one of the coldest winters on record, that of 1895, and put straight into trade.
From the moment she was launched in the Cann yard, to the present day, the film tells the story of how she survived, and is still under sail with the Thames Sailing Barge Trust.


The DVD is available at a price of £10 including postage and packaging.

Copies can be purchased by sending a cheque for £10.00 payable to the Thames Sailing Barge Trust, to 25 Repertor Drive, Maldon, Essex CM9 6FQ
