- 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.

The Ale Train
Saturday 9th September
Brilliant time was had on the Llangollen 'real ale steam train'. We arrived early to partake of the BBQ (burgers or hot dogs) given a free pint glass each and told we could get seated whenever we wanted. (On the right as this gave the best views). Two trips there and back and plenty of photo opportunities. By the time we returned at 9.30 pm it was dark and so very glad of Ians light on his phone. We encountared a trip hazard but more of that tomorrow.
