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.

When the North wind doth blow...

...Then we shall have snow. Well we had hail today, but the Daily Mail forecasts heavy snow for next month. I'll believe it when I see it. Having said that, Falmouth in Cornwall had about four inches of the white stuff last week.
We're on the 24 hour moorings in the lower basin right outside the Foxton Locks Inn. We visited the museum and it was nice to see the history and why it all went to wrack and ruin. Of course a visit had to be made to Bridge 61, where we had a pint and a baguette, had to be done. Tonight we're going in the Foxton Locks, I'll keep you posted...
Today's pics.

This passed through the flight today, nice...

Tomorrow we have to book early to get the first available slot, the locks open at 08:00 but C&RT are pressure washing some of the lock gates (my thoughts exactly) so passage may not be available until lunchtime, but if we're first in the queue...

They were doing Watford the other day, we were 10th in the queue to go down with 12 coming up. We got through at 6-30PM

Brian and Diana,
pressure washing didn't happen today after all. We were through by 10:45. Lucky.
