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.

A bit windy today and by Jove we have suffered because of it. Leaves are carpeted across the canal making our progress very slow. Every few minutes we are having to reverse hard just to clear them from around our prop. On a lighter note the trees look amazing with the rich colours of Autumn. Its a lovely time of year.
How many of you have been through Saddington tunnel? and how many have seen the bats? I was honored to have them circling the boat just before we exited the north portal. What with seeing 3 kingfisher, a monk jack, buzzards, quail, loads of pheasants and numerous squirrels all in the space of two days, I cant think of a better way to spending my time.
