Saul Junction has for the longest of times played a major role in the Gloucestershire seafaring traditions. The following archive is an amalgamation of several sources and have in part helped to track down a myriad of locally built, locally owned and locally operated vessels which were known to utilize this vital region of Gloucestershire's inland waterways network.

The author is keen to hear from any one who can either add to or offer any further information relating to this long since departed Gloucestershire fleet.
