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.

Nearly there.

I finished off the work on the locker covers this morning and we made our way slowly through Nantwich to the water point and filled the fresh water tank. We had to wait as there was someone already using it, but it was very pleasant waiting in the sunshine.

Once filled we proceeded along and as we left Nantwich it started to rain, and we were hit by a heavy squally shower and as we approached the Hurleston Junction we decided enough was enough and moored up and soon after the rain stopped! 😠

So we had lunch while we were here, just a bread roll and a coffee but we won't need feeding again until July!

We passed the Barbridge Inn 😟 and headed toward the junction where we turned right onto the Middlewich Branch, through the only lock of the day, Cholmondeston Lock, and moored up in open countryside, 360 degree views.

By the way the water point that was there is no longer, it has been removed because apparently it is too expensive to repair/replace. (What's that smell?).

It's chilly, smoke on.
We head off to Aqueduct Marina tomorrow, our new base for the foreseeable.

I just had to add these, they're one of the most spectacular phenomenon to be seen here in England.
