As an extension of my Oxford Canal Dwellers project, I recently photographed the resident of the Corpus Christi Barge. This is an amazing boat, built in 1930 and used by Corpus Christi Rowers in those days as a club common room, crew changing room and viewing platform for rowing races. The boat is now owned by the Oxford Preservation Trust and moored on the Thames near to the Donnington Bridge. Trustee Bruce Heagerty lives there. What a fantastic place!
