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.

Fazeley Junction is quite attractive, a new housing development incorporates an old crane and on the other side of a short arm is a BW office and sanitation station. Right on the junction an elegant house, was, I think the head office of the canal company and a nearby mill is where Cash’s name tapes are still made, you know, the ones we all had sewn in our school uniforms.

We continued on The Coventry Canal though Tamworth and as we passed a boat yard at Grendon Bridge I spotted a PowerCell van and sure enough there was Will, who had fitted our new batteries a few weeks ago, doing the same to another boat, I slowed and had a brief conversation with him and the boat owner, before we moved on to tackle the eleven Atherstone locks, fortunately another boat was always coming towards us leaving the next lock ready for us. We stopped at the top for the night and walked six minutes back to the Aldi store for essentials, beer and chocolate OK.
