The Herb Boat
The herb boat is new to me, though I understand it can often be found moored and trading near Apperley Bridge, a few miles along the Leeds-Liverpool canal in the direction of Leeds. The narrowboat Herbidacious is the home and business of Sue 'Bunny' Cotton. She sells a huge range of dried herbs, spices, herb-related kitchenware, books and other curios. She was moored just under the Victoria Road bridge in the centre of Saltaire during the Festival. It was a colourful display and it is always good to see narrowboats being given life and used creatively. Sue trades online too and has a blog and a Facebook page.
