Bennett's Barges was founded in 1983 by Alan C Bennett’s & Sons through towing and attendance contracts in the dredging and marine civil engineering sectors. Following a series of aggregate and spoil disposal projects, including the Limehouse Link and Jubilee Line Underground Railway Extension, a link was made with Foster Yeoman Limited, now part of Aggregate Industries.

After a highly successful spell as the lighterage contractor for Yeoman Aggregates, we became part of the group in 2002. Foster Yeoman became a member of Aggregate Industries in 2006 and we completed the group customer package of sustainable transport options.

In 2009 we merged with Tidy Thames Refuse Services to form a joint venture, gaining a new Managing Director, Mr Chris Livett - Bargemaster to H.M. The Queen. The merger brings a broader client base and additional specialist barges and vessels. We now cater for the domestic, leisure, construction, waste and commercial sectors.
