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.

What's going on here?

Lovely day today, so I cycled to Bridgwater again. Things are changing along the B & T, not only with the season but also physically too. CaRT have been up to something, don't know what this is all about...
So this prevents/discourages cyclists and pedestrians from using the tow path. There is an alternative nearby route via the country road for about 0.7 miles, but at the other end of the diversion...
Nothing, not even a sign to indicate what lies ahead.
So coming from Bridgwater you could cycle or walk all the way along the tow path only to find you have to cycle or walk all the way back. I suspect many are not fit enough to lift a 15kg bike over a five bar gate on their own, I certainly couldn't do it, and I bet many walkers would find difficulty in negotiating it too.
Perhaps it's just for the Winter as the unmetalled path is quite muddy in places.

And what's going on in Albert Cutting?
Inspection work
...and further along.
Apparently all the wooden beams put up in the 1960's are badly rotting and they're investigating to find whether the wall can maintain what lies behind without them.

On the way back I spied Mother Earth...
Tiny compared with the Sun.

It's the dot in the question mark!
