National Bargee Travellers Association

Welcome to the National Bargee Travellers Association

The NBTA seeks to represent the interests of all itinerant live aboard boat dwellers – “Bargee Travellers” – in respect of

  • pursuing the lifestyle
  • upholding minority demographic rights
  • lobbying at both central government and local government levels
  • defending the legal rights of members
  • assisting (as far as possible) with marine emergencies and
  • engagement with the local community

Latest news:

The NBTA is run by volunteers and we need more volunteers!
