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.

Flood at Hillmorton

Before we arrived at the bottom lock, a boater travelling in the opposite directions told us we would need our wellies because the towpath was awash. When we arrived a BW chap had just turned up and was trying to sort out the problem. He assumed that a boater had left a paddle open and the amount of water coming down from the second lock had drenched the surrounding lock and towpath. He was not best pleased as it had washed a lot of the granite stone from the path and down a culvert.
Posted by Picasa I can almost here his thoughts. He was not a happy chappie.
