The talk will cover the history of the Tom Pudding system, its preservation and connections with Royalty.

It will include hopefully some DVD footage of the tugs and a song or two about the life of a tug-man.

It will also include details of the Yorkshire Waterways Heritage Society plans to save a historic tug for Goole and ensure the preservation and development of archives on the local waterways.
