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.

Worcester to Tibberton & Oddingley

Well here we are, Christmas Eve, and after a morning spent in Worcester, looking around the City and the Cathedral, Lin wanted to look around the Cathedral, I'm not the religious type, but I couldn't help being impressed by the architecture, it is quite amazing.

Back to the boatyard, and we said our thanks and goodbyes and filled up with water before leaving on our return journey, so we didn't get to Diglis after all. Maybe another day. So its back to our planned stop The Bridge. An excellent meal again but this time it was a bit more expensive, but we don't mind paying more if its good and indeed it was.

Christmas Day, and we had a lazy morning, other boats moved away well before us, but we thought no-one would be mooring on a spot we picked out on the way to Worcester. About 3/4 of a mile further up the cut is a nice spot between two bridges where the railway line comes close to the canal. There being no trains today, its very peaceful here.

Our Location on Christmas Day.

Oddingley, Bridge no. 26

After phoning home and Lins parents in Spain, we settled down to Christmas lunch. Turkey sprouts, roast potatoes, roast parsnip etc., then we opened our presents.
