Henry's People

Henry is an 80 foot commercial barge who began her working life on the Thames 100 years ago.

After Justin Ford discovered her in a state of disrepair in the mid-1990s, he gave up his city job and spent the next eight years restoring Henry to her former glory and finding out about her colourful past.

Graham Easton boards Henry and meets nearly all of her various owners - or their descendants - at her 100th birthday party.
