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.

Crickey! We will be high and dry on the towpath if this carrys on.

Unusual to list toward the towpath. Must be that the ropes are too tight. Shows how much the level has risen since lunchtime.

Taken after lunch

and at 5.30pm

Water nearly over the top of the cladding
Loosening the ropes.

If this keeps up we might end up on the towpath!!!!!!


6pm Towpath starts to flood!!!!

Listing yet again

Cladding completely disappeared.

Towpath breach

Bees getting caught out in the mini flood.

Releasing ropes for a second time.

Hope the water level has dropped this morning?
The water level was up here at Worsley yesterday, but is back down again this morning.
Stay safe you too xxxxxxx

Hi Jo,

The water levels dropped sufficiently later on in the evening for us to take Jade out without having to paddle through 1" of water!
Now on our way back to Hanbury Junction ( for the third time!!!)
