Norton Canes Boatbuilders, run by owner Graham Edgson, continues an unbroken tradition of canal boat building on the site originally occupied by Yates Bros. since 1846, at the current Northerly limit of the BCN Cannock Extension Canal just off the A5 at Norton Canes.
At Norton Canes we pride ourselves in being able to develop a special relationship with our customers by building a boat, which fully meets their needs.
