About Us

My photo
In 1977 we hired our first narrowboat from Anglo Welsh at Market Harborough.From that moment our destiny was set. In 2006 we finally purchased our own brand new 57' narrowboat which we named 'Free Spirit'. Our aim is to travel the length and breadth of all the navigable rivers and canals of the UK. This will be our story as it unfolds.

The Anderton Lift

We were hoping to go down the lift onto the River Weaver but two things were against us. One, there was a boat festival going on which meant mooring near the lift was impossible and two, the weather forcast was for gale force winds with possible branches or even worse, tree's down. Instead we found sheltered moorings about 1/4 mile away and gate crashed the festival instead.
The next day we stayed put as the predicted forecast was right for a change. I attempted to fish but with branches crashing down all around me I gave it up as a bad idea.
