Lea Valley Narrowboat Company

A family run business for over 45 years based on the beautiful River Lea at Stanstead Abbotts and Hertford.

Formed by two canal enthusiasts, Pat and John Milton in 1974, the Company’s foundations and their home were soon established on the River Lea in Hertfordshire until the present day with their daughter Nicola and son in law Mark now heading up the business with their family.

Initially, the main business of the Company was operating passenger boat trips aboard the ex. Fellows Morton & Clayton Josher “Holland” but over the years the business expanded to include hire boats, fit-outs and repair work, retail sales, boat brokerage and two marinas.

Currently the business offers leisure and residential moorings at Stanstead Abbotts and Hertford along with the boat brokerage.
