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.

Barbridge to Adderley Locks.

A lateish start to the day, we ate too much in the pub last night. We moved up to the junction to fill the tank with water and we had to queue. When it was our turn we discovered the same old same old, the water supply was as slow as it's always been.

Oh! No, where's the Jolly Tar?

I'm guessing it'll soon be a housing estate.

Entrance to the Llangollen Canal.

Approaching Stretton Aqueduct.

When we reached lock 13 at Audlem there was a chap sat on the balance beam reading a book. He helped lock us through and asked if he could help us going up the flight. I handed him a windlass and our conversation made the task go a lot quicker. The only hold-up, if you could call it that, was a hire boat which pulled out in front of us as we were approaching lock 11. They were newbies but they were learning fast. Of course we had to help them as well, otherwise they would have slowed us down. Our helper took us almost to the top and we insisted he left with a little something to slake his thirst when he got back. What a kind fellow, and a big thank you to you.
