At 58 feet length, TQ (as we call her) is a steel hull narrow boat built by Colecraft and fitted out by Elton Moss Boatbuilders. Currently based at Aqueduct Marina in Cheshire we're able to cruise some of the most popular waterways in Britain. The Shropshire Union, The Trent and Mersey, The Llangollen Canal, The Four Counties Ring and Cheshire Ring and more.

Our friendly Syndicate decided to go down the Self Management route on 1st March 2012 and so far it has been very successful. Please visit the other pages in this blog to see the new Web Site and if shares are available for sale. (There'll not be many).

I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

It looks like Christmas plans are scuppered...

After months of planning, we learned today that the Worcester and Birmingham Canal is blocked due to excessive build-up of silt. That leaves us with Birmingham City Centre or the Stratford upon Avon Canal. Well, we were in Birmingham City Centre in September, so it looks like a trip down the Stratford. British Waterways website Waterscrape reads thus:-
15 Dec 2008 until further notice
Stoppage: Bridge 58Associated Regional Office: BW West Midlands
Due to adverse weather conditions an excessive amount of silt has washed from surrounding fields into the canal reducing the draft to and un-navigable depth. The navigation is closed from Tardebigge to Alvechurch Marina. There are winding holes at both Alvechurch and Tardebigge.Due to the nature of the problem updates for completion will be supplied as soon as they are available.British Waterways apologises for any inconvenience caused.
(Enquiries: 01827 252000)
We'll be keeping an eye on the situation leading right up to the day we go.
