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.

IWA Festival on the River Soar

We finally made the journey back to Redhill Marina and moored as near to the site as possible. Our actual moorings during the festival are above Radcliffe lock, but from that mooring we would have had to walk nearly a mile As the chain ferry wouldn't be running until the festival started, it was decided that we would take the first available space and stay there until we were told to move.
