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.

Rugby was our destination, the Tesco Extra store is conveniently within walking distance of the canal. The towpath was crowded with moored boats, but fortunately another boat moved on just in time for us to slide into the vacated space.

There is a multi screen cinema and retail centre, with a Halfords, Homebase and Next stores, plus a few others, just a little further on, which is probably why this stretch of towpath was so popular.

The night was spent just before the flight of three locks at Hillmorton, unusual in that there are two single locks side by side, I suspect that the additional locks were added when this section was straightened, obviously done to speed up the flow of traffic, the canal equivalent of a dual carriageway.
