|7||Mr Toad (the name by which he is popularly known amongst the boating community) talks about building and renovating a number of narrow boats, many of which remain in use on the Oxford canal today, including Hieronymus Pepys, which was one of the first canal boats to employ a conservatory area frontage.
Mr Toad now lives between Somerset and London and continues to build narrow boats and barges, many of which remain afloat on the British waterways.
