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.

Assisted Return Journey


Norton in the Mist

Our son and Grandson arrived safely last night and it was great to see them. We were all awake quite early and ready to start the day. What a lovely morning we had too- the weather had improved greatly and we even had to take our coats off! We made our way through the seven locks of the Buckby Flight with another boat; four men on that one, hiring a narrow boat for the first time and enjoying it. They stopped for lunch at the last lock of the flight but we continued, through Braunston Tunnel, with a quick break afterwards before working the six Braunston locks. Hard work, (but not for me), with all those difficult gates today! And that’s it for locks this trip….. Just the couple of hours back to Napton tomorrow morning. Oh, I almost forgot- this afternoon the weather got very grey and VERY cold again. One of the Buckby locks was overflowing and looked like a waterfall, hence the photo. At Norton Junction conditions were just right for a reflective/reflecting photograph.
