Knighton Wharf

I would be interested to hear from anyone with information about the Cadbury horse drawn milk boats.

My great Uncle Thomas Talbott, worked the milk boats in the 1900's . I understand that he worked with George Wiseman and that the boat was possibly Bounville no.5 What I do know is that the boat was moored at Norbury juction and travelled to High Onn wharf then started picking up milk churns all the way to cabury's Knighton, returning to Norbury with empty churns,where the horse was stabled for the night, ready for the next day.

any more information would be most welcome.

 
This was the wharf for the Cadbury factory.
 
 
Knighton Wharf is a major waterways place on the Shropshire Union Canal (Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal - Main Line) between Norbury Junction (Junction with former Newport Branch) (4 miles and 3 furlongs to the southeast) and Newport Road Bridge No 45 (Knighton) (1 furlong to the west).
 
It is at one end of Shebdon Embankment.
 
The nearest place in the direction of Norbury Junction is Shebdon Farm Aqueduct (Also called Knighton Aqueduct); 2¾ furlongs away.
