Hello! I’m Sheridan, the founder of Canalside Property. I’m not an estate agent (although I was once, back in 1987!) I’m a local and family historian, and a qualified genealogist. In 2018 I decided to indulge my love of narrowboating and canal heritage by launching this website as a hobby. It has gradually taken over a big chunk of my life – not that I’m complaining – I love it! I want to keep Canalside Property free for ever, both for estate agents and for property buyers, but there is a cost in terms of money and time, and of course I don’t receive any commissions or advertising revenue, so I’d really benefit from a little bit of support.
There are two ways to help:
A one-off donation of £3 via our Ko-Fi account is a lovely way to show that you love Canalside Property.
A $2 per month donation via Patreon is a completely voluntary way for you to support what I do on a regular basis, and get a little bonus service in return – you’ll get an email notification whenever I post a new property to the website! It’s very exciting that you care. Thank you, every little helps!
Why don’t I charge estate agents to advertise instead?
Because I want to include as many properties as possible! I don’t want to restrict them to those from agents who’ll pay, especially in today’s market – many estate agents are facing challenges of their own.
