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.

This is out of order!

 As you know I fish and enjoy the hobby but this must be stopped! Please copy and paste the photo to your blogs to get the message across. Canals were dug out for boats not for nature (although I'm passionate about it) and certainly not for the fishermen!!!!

Shackerstone Festival 6 - 7th September - Suspension of all towpath moorings
Between 29th August and 14th September all visitor moorings and casual moorings (14 days) will be temporarily suspended with mooring only allowed along particular sections identified for the Festival.  Therefore all boaters intending to travel and moor to attend this festival need to arrange a mooring with the mooring organisers, Ashby Canal Association.  Contacts details below.
Event contact:  Mr Blackford - 07974 212 347 (until Sunday 24th August), Mr Grimsley - 07775 800 534 (from Monday 25th August)
"Towpath moorings for the event are available and will be signed between Bridges 46 - 53. Specific mooring locations have been identified to accommodate the anticipated number of boats booking in for the event with the event organises.
The Trust apolog
ies for the timing of this notice, but this is due to a recent agreement with Natural England to help protect the canal environment within the Site of Special Scientific Interest from Bridge 46 to Snarestone."
