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.

Shropshire union canal


After leaving the Llangollen canal we turned right and headed up the Shropshire union. Most of this canal is dead straight and quite boring but there were a few interesting bits namely Tyrely Locks which we had to negotiate through very narrow cuttings. We had to find really rural moorings because as it was the first weekend of guy Fawkes the dogs being terrified of fireworks would have probably hyper ventilated and had panic attacks!
