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 of course I don’t receive any commissions or advertising revenue, so I’m incredibly grateful for every little bit of support.

There are two ways to donate:

A one-off donation of £3 via our Ko-Fi account is a lovely way to show that you love Canalside Property.

Become a Patron!
A $2 per month donation via Patreon is a completely voluntary way for you to support the site on a regular basis, and you’ll get a little bonus service in return – an email notification whenever I post a new property to the website!

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.

Another way to help – Property Spotting

I am always incredibly grateful to anyone who sends me properties to feature on my website, especially when photos are included. I don’t use agent’s photos without permission, so it’s really useful to have a photo from one of my followers. Please don’t trespass when taking photos, though! I am happy to credit you for any photos used on the site.
