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.

First snow of winter

We arrived at a place called Cosgrove on the Grand Union. We had been told by other boaters that this was a very secure place to moor as a lovely lady named Hazel looked after the moorings as mooring warden. As we had planned to stay for a couple of weeks and leave the boat this was ideal for us. My brother was arriving from Australia and staying with my son and Cosgrove was only about 5 miles from his house in Milton Keynes.
The snow fell early in the morning of the 18th December. When the sun came out the sky turned bright red. Unfortunately the pictures doesn't show how spectacular it really was.
