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.

Last Post of 2013.

It's incredible how the weather plays such a major part in navigating the inland waterways. Today started off damp but not raining, but as soon as I poked my head out of the door it started. It became heavier as we negotiated the locks at Cropredy, then all of a sudden it emptied down accompanied with hail. Too late for us, we couldn't do anything to shelter from it, we just had to keep going. Once through Claydon Top Lock we moored up on the public visitor moorings and had a hot drink and a snack before continuing our journey along the summit level. By now the rain had eased and there were beginnings of some brightness, even blue sky on the horizon, but it wasn't until late in the day that the Sun decided to peep out from behind the cloud only for a brief moment.
Nice canal side property in Cropredy.
Loads of berries left on the bushes, I wonder if it's going to be a hard Winter

A feeder into the summit level.

I like this design, it looks good, is functional and something that wouldn't be amiss in the gardens of a stately home.

Does anyone know what these are for?

It's the end of the year, and as in every year so much has happened. I'm not going to look back over the last twelve months, you can watch that on BBC, ITVand Sky News 'til your heart's content, so it leaves me now to thank everyone for reading my drivel and to wish you all a very Happy New Year.

They are pheasant feeders, You fill them with maze, there is like a spring on the bottom and the pheasant pecks the corn out through the spring
