I am a Radley descendant with an interest in rowing and boat building. The only physical evidence of the Radley boat yards today is the the bungalow at Springhill opposite Lea rowing club and a number of surviving Radley built boats. The last boat built was in 1969 by Sid Radley the last and most talented Radley boat builder. The book will attempt to document the Radley heritage.
