Waiting against the concrete loading wharf at Baddesley Colliery on the Coventry Canal in the summer sunshine is Uranus.  One of the small fleet formerly operated by John Knill and bought by Samuel Barlow in January 1955.  The distinctive paintwork on the cabinsides is the work of George Crowshaw.  (Narrowboat Magazine Winter 2015)
