About Me

70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

The weather was supposed to be sunny intervals, but was more than slightly damp, but this didn’t spoil our friends enjoyment of this, for them, totally new experience and delightful canal.

We moored at Sutton Wharf, just passed the winding hole and water point, there is a staging big enough for four boats, which was made entirely out of plastic square uprights and planking, probably made from recycled plastic bottles, it looked good and should last along time, just a pity that it hadn’t been screwed together a little more accurately.

A walk around the Bosworth battlefield revealed that what has for such a long time been considered to be the actual site, could not have been and the search to find the real site continues, rather a disappointment really, but an enjoyable walk through the wood nevertheless.

We spent the evening just above bridge 42, one mile from Market Bosworth, with the intention of walking into the town on Sunday morning.
