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.

Grindley Brook

At Grindley Brook we found a garage next to the lock selling diesel at 58p a litre. Ian then got his 20 litre jerry can out and filled our tank with trips to and fro to the garage to save us a few pence further up! After about a hour of this we decided that enough was enough and although our tank wasn't full we would see if we could find a marina that was selling diesel as cheap but with less strain on the back.
