HASTY  leaving the south end of Blisworth Tunnel.  This photo was taken in 1908 during the construction of the tunnel end buildings. However the craft appears to be the post-1922 design, which would seem to prove the existence of 3 Hastys but if you can think of another explanation please contact me


Almost certainly HASTY leaving Braunston Tunnel in 1911. The photographer was T W Millner. This boat matches the boat in the image above.
