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 just perfect weatherm if a little chill. We wandered around the village of Wrenbury before Jacquie activated the electric lift bridge and we cruised along this peaceful canal. There is just a handful of well spaced locks to keep things interesting, that is until we arrived at the six Grindley Brook locks, three of them are in a ‘staircase’ and a lock keeper is on duty to ensure that no flooding takes place. Shortly afterwards we stopped just short of the Whitchurch arm and when I walked Duggie around onto the arm, memories came flooding back from our boating holiday four years ago with Kim and John, when we took the fateful decision to buy a boat. There were plans then to extend this truncated arm back towards the town centre, as it quite a long walk from the canal. Nothing yet has taken place, although, as can be seen from following website, various options are being seriously considered.
