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.

Continuing problems with the laptop and dongle mean either new laptop or new dongle! (Or sometimes, a mooring place nearer a mobile phone mast.)

On Wednesday, we set off in bright sunshine. Shortly afterwards we went through Crick tunnel, up past the marina, then turned to find a mooring place near Bridge 14. We tied up there at 1045 and did some jobs before having lunch. Afterwards we walked into the village and came upon a Post Office quite soon- great. Except it was Wednesday afternoon, so the post office section of the shop was closed! However, stamps could be purchased in the shop, which was well stocked. We went to see the very old church, St Margaret's, which was undergoing a lot of restoration work. Have enclosed a photo- unfortunately the scaffolding and plastic rather spoiled the outside of it. We passed the three pubs and some very pretty cottages. On the way back to the boat, we went to look at 'The Moorings', a restaurant at the canalside near the bridge. It -and the menu- looked good so we booked a table for later. On the way back to the boat we met a couple with two miniature ponies walking on the towpath- as seen on photograph. Cute.
The restaurant used to be called 'Edward's' - as stated in Pearson's, but I believe it isn't so long since the 'new' owners changed the name, although they have been there for six years. The meal we enjoyed there was first class!
