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.

Day Seven...

Another smashing day today, it started off misty with clear skies and then clouded over for much of it until around 3pm when the sun broke through again, and it was warm.

The view from TQ at 07:00hrs today.

The very pretty Lilford Lock

The Church at Cotterstock
They like their churches around here, they're all large and well looked after, and so many of them. I'll blog a photo of Fotheringhay Church tomorrow.

Our current location
Its lovely here, you could hear a pin drop.

I didn't realise how long the River Nene is. CanalplanAC reckons we could go as far as Ely on the River Great Ouse, but we have to turn back on Wednesday as that is our halfway point time wise. In addition we have to pick up a parcel from a boatyard in Peterborough on Tuesday/Wednesday, and then I have to fit the new Webasto heater. All this is going to take time, so we're going to call it quits and fore go the Middle Level and the Great Ouse this time.

One thing I've noticed today, there are more moorings along this stretch of river than further South-West, some even have facilities.

By the way, the exhaust is still holding its own.

Don't miss another exciting episode tomorrow. (Hopefully).

Lucky Devils! Our trip down the Nene this September had to be postponed to next year. The calorifier burst, the engine burst and we have a leak somewhere. Still, the weather is about to buck up. Saw Lyn's pic in the mag!

I think your "Cotterstock Lock" is actually Lilford, the most beautiful lock on the river.
