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.

A whole bunch of Jacquie’s girlfriend had threatened us with a visit and tomorrow was to be the day. We knew that Hunton Bridge was easily accessible from the M25 and there were several pubs to choose from. On route from Croxley, we passed through the lovely Cassiobury Park and under the ornamental stone balustraded bridge 164. The Earl of Essex insisted that this be built instead of the usual hump back brick bridge, before granting permission for the canal company to dig its canal though his park. Good man!!

No shortage of moorings at Hunton Bridge, we moored opposite the new development of apartments and houses, and checked out the pubs. The former Kings Head, now the, Italian flavoured, Waterside Inn looked favourite with plenty of parking.
