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.

Early morning and...

...The sky is full of con trails...

All heading off to sunnier climes maybe?
We did the whole of Heartbreak Hill yesterday, and stopped for lunch in the Broughton Arms in Rode Heath. It was a bit disappointing, the last time we were there the food was very good, but now it only just makes OK. The Hob Goblin Gold was a very nice pint though.

Stopped just above Kings Lock in Middlewich, it would be rude not to have fish and chips from the very fine f & c shop across the road - t'were delicious.

Onward finds us through Kings Lock, left onto the Wardle Canal and it's lock, then up to Stanthorn Lock where we caught up with some guys in their late fifties/early sixties who didn't have a clue what they were doing. As I approached, one of them said "Ah, you must be the lock keeper, [I chuckled] how do I ...?". I explained and they were grateful.

Today I've tightened the stern gland and refilled the greaser; it drips no more.

Moored up now, enjoying the early summer sunshine, long may it last.
