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.

Hmmm...self explanatory

Some people just chose to ignore signs

Busy busy day with it being work party Friday. All hands on deck to try and get ECP&DA's acquired ex C&RT workboat Pentland ready to go back in the water. The engine came out ages ago to be refurbished and with it almost ready to go back in, priority was to get the blacking done and engine bay painted.  Cabin sides and the roof was full of rust so before that could be painted, needed a good grinding. I was roped in to do the blacking and Ian disappeared into the depths of the engine bay to red oxide before the engine was returned. The plan, hopefully, is to get it finished in time for the rally in May so fingers and toes all crossed that this happens.

And a few before and after photos.
