Discover the History of Sailing Barges

With The Society for Sailing Barge Research

Once, nearly 5,000 sailing barges plied their trades. Now a still-dwindling handful survive. They carried five times as much and lasted five times as long as the largest trucks on today’s roads, with environmental credentials to embarrass modern transportation methods.

Whether you have a casual interest or a fervent enthusiasm, the S.S.B.R. is your conduit for all things ‘sailing barge’. Just £30 per annum keeps you in touch; with three magazines, plus occasional additional publications and the resource of a 40,000+ item Archive. The opportunity to share mutual interests has fuelled the Society’s success for more than 50 years. Join us now to discover and enjoy these historically important cargo carriers from the days of sail.
