Built in 1934 by the Neath Canal Company, IVY MAY is a towed, wooden hull barge and used for canal maintenance and not for the carriage of freight. She was the last to be built at the Canal for use in maintenance work. She lay submerged in the canal for many years but, in 1977, she was raised and was subsquently restored to her original condition. She is now stored at the National Collections Centre, Nantgarw.
