- The boatyard is still operating today but is mainly kept going by private and leisure boats. The barges were launched sideways into the canal down a slipway. They were held back by chocks at front and back (stem and stern) which were hammered away at the crucial moment so that the barge would slide down into the water with a great splash. Today's boats are much smaller and are lifted into the water by a crane. www.mirfieldmemories.co.uk/transport.htm
