Braunston Dock.  The shed on the left is the fitting shop, the long shed is the boat building area.  Boats were launched from here sideways into the canal arm.  The majority of small boats are Dolphins, plywood boats built on a production line at Brooklands, Northampton.  The large elm trees were all felled by Dutch Elm disease in the 60’s and 70’s.
