Old barges have a habit of surviving through all kinds of calamities. The Glenway has lived through more than most. She was built in 1913 by James Little at Rochester in Kent. Her owners are recorded as Mr. Hammond, and later a Mr. Wilks. In 1933 she was bought by West's at Gravesend who in 1934 fitted a diesel engine.
