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.

All systems go.

Well the radiator is on!. Took all day as Ian encountered a few hiccups along the way, one being the way the pipes had been fitted by the boat builder. There was a valve that couldn't be removed so he turned the pipe 90 deg, attached a stub pipe and put a new piece onto that. Off course all this took time especially as another trip to Screwfix was in order. So eventually, after FS was getting colder and colder and I was starting to resemble a block of ice, at 4.45pm the heating finally went back on. Thank goodness for that!!!

Almost finished. Just the wood to be replaced.
Ta da!
 And another batch of piccies.
