Having arrived at Fiskerton on Friday night and found the moorings completely empty, we happily claimed a mooring spot. We’d not been up here since we brought Harebell back in August, but it was just as lovely and peaceful as we’d remembered. The weather this morning was not co operating and the sky was overcast,… Read more »
Today, the morning dawned cold & frosty but fantastically sunny. As has been the case quite a lot over the last few sunny days, my mind turned to boating; I miss my boat- I’m keen to get going, to one day enjoy the relaxation of moving at 4 mph and the next to set ourselves a challenge… Read more »
Hebden Bridge to Brighouse
They say that the best laid plans go awry. Last night I realised that we would not have enough time to get to Todmorden, mooch about and then get back to Lemonroyd in time for Thursday. Cue much discussion and wondering. By the time we’d woken this morning, we felt that it was a good… Read more »
We Had Boating in the Sun.
The morning dawned as we’d expected; bright sunshine and rising temperatures. Even though we’d slept with the front doors open, the thermometer inside was nearing 20 degrees and it was only 7.30am!! None of us fancied much breakfast, so it was a few pain au chocolate and a coffee. Mindful of our plans to stop… Read more »
Lincoln City V Forest Green Rovers

The time of year helped us along the way with early morning sunshine. We were at the station by 7.50 and… Read more »
Sowerby Bound & Arriving in the Dark!
As has been the case on many trips just lately, the desire for an early start was nowhere to be seen, so we lazed in bed for a little longer. We finally left our sunny moorings at 10 am and the boys set to getting Harebell through a few locks whilst I waited for the… Read more »
Start of Rochdale Summit Trip
After arriving at the marina fairly late in the day, we only got as far as Woodnook lock as darkness approached: We tucked on the end of the lock moorings and settled down for the night. As is the case when one moors up at night, there is not a lot of awareness about one’s… Read more »
21 Miles and 22 Locks
By our standards these last few trips, we had another early start. We were booked through the Tinsley flight at 8.45/9am and were a good 45 minutes away in the basin. We left at 8am and headed northwards. This time I took a few pictures of the Tyler Wilson boatyard and as we were passing… Read more »
