(Boat Flamingo - posted by Alan)
Even though the name Willow Wren ceased to relate to a carrying company, when Willow Wren Canal Transport Services was wound up in 1970, the name, and a variant of the livery remains in use on a still active hire fleet based at Rugby.
The boat waiting for the locks to the left of Flamingo is one such hire boat.
I hope it is turned out with its roof in better condition than "Flamingo's" currently is. cath made a start on it some months back, but "rain stopped play".
