About us

A family run business for over 45 years


Lea Valley Narrowboat Co. Ltd was formed in 1974 by two canal enthusiasts, Pat and John Milton. The company's foundations and their home were soon established on the River Lea in Hertfordshire, where they have remained until the present day, with their daughter, Nicola and son-in-law, Mark now heading up the business as John and Pat enjoy their retirement spending their time between Scotland and Hertfordshire.

John and Pat still retain a small interest in the Company on a consultancy basis. Nicola has been involved in canal boating for most of her life and her husband Mark has recently retired from the Met Police. Nicola and Mark with their two children enjoy the outdoor/active life and are both keen runners and cyclists with Nicola also being a qualified UK Athletics Running Coach, Pilates Teacher and Personal Trainer. John and Pat's other daughter, Sally, who now lives in Scotland has had equal involvement in boating and for many years ran the boat brokerage division. Sally's husband, Andy, was once the British Waterway's Enforcement Officer for the Lea and Stort.
