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.

We soon arrived at the lovely little village of Cropedy, whose main claim to fame is hosting Europe’s largest annual Folk Festival every August. How they manage to squeeze a festival of this nature into such a tiny space has to be seen to be understood. Our guide book says It all started in 1979 when Fairport Convention held it’s farewell concert there.
The buildings are in mellow stone with many of them thatched and to complete the image of the quintessential English village there are two pubs and a stately sandstone church.

The canal was also host to a very active canoe club, where a bunch of youngsters were playing canal volley ball, or ‘Who Can Capsize the Quickest Whilst throwing a Ball’
