The Jam ‘Ole Run was the name given to the journey from Atherstone to Brentford carrying coal from the mines to the Kearley and Tonge jam factory by pairs of narrowboats. Many of the boats were based at Braunston. The trade ceased in October 1970 but the run is periodically re-enacted by some of the original boats along with other old working boats.
