Childhood on London’s Canals

We are collecting stories of children’s experiences of living on or near London’s canals.

The London Canal Museum is the capital’s only inlands waterway museum dedicated to telling the fascinating story of London's canals and those who lived and worked on them.

The museum has a collection of oral history recordings including some of people who grew up on narrow boats in the 1950s and ‘60s. You can listen to these in a feature on “life on board” on the website at www.canalmuseum.org.uk/collection/oral-history-mp3.htm

To bring the story up to date we are looking for adults who as children lived on narrow boats or children who now live on boats on London’s canals who would like to be interviewed and recorded talking about their everyday lives.

The recordings will be used in the museum’s educational work with school groups and will also form part of the archive which can be used for future research, exhibitions and publications.

If you have a story to tell, please contact Sally Mijit: sally @lcmemail.co.uk

The London Canal Museum is open from 10am to 4.30pm, every day except Mondays (open on bank holiday Mondays). Admission is just £4 for adults, £2 for children and £3 for concessions, family ticket £10.

The Museum is on New Wharf Road, close to King’s Cross station, London.
