Sep 14, 2019 - A quiet one today

We had a very early night after the long couple of days. After almost 12 hours sleep we felt much better but decided to have a quiet day today. Being a lovely sunny Saturday everyone decided to make the most of it and came out in their boats for the day. We had rowers all morning and stink boats all day. So we decided to pay for another night's mooring and stay here tomorrow as well so we don't have to contend with the weekend traffic and hopefully there will be moorings available on the next leg. This afternoon we went for a walk and...

Sep 13, 2019 - Another big day

This is the basin this morning. A lovely sunny day for us. We left the basin at 11am and arrived at Teddington at 2.15pm, riding the tide up all the way. It was like being on board SeaQuill at times while in the busy areas of the Thames close to London. This tug was towing 3 barges with containers on and overtook us at one stage. This is why we call them stink boats - the cloud of smoke was much thicker before I managed to take the pic. It took us a bit of time to find a mooring once we were through the Teddington Lock and onto...

Sep 13, 2019 - Thirsk to Boltby

Miles from Thirsk to Boltby Todays destination was to a visitors centre at Sutton where Brigantes suggested I arrange transport to nearby Boltby with the owner for my overnight stay.However as the distance there was only estimated to be about 10 miles, a half days walk, I decided to plan a route directly to my overnight accommodation. Looking at the map it became clear it was not far off the 'trail' and I could leave there the next day eastwards picking up the Cleveland national trail. Town Pasture farm, Boltby was situated within the...

Sep 11, 2019 - Last day on the Grand Union

While we were in Brentford township the other day we decided to have a look at the Church. Very disappointing as it's very modern and open plan inside. They've kept the facade and the tower and the rest has been rebuilt. We're moored opposite the Glaxo, Smith, Kline building and next to that is Boston Manor Park, so we had a walk through there today. It's a large park with lots of walking paths and some nice colourful gardens and a large play area for children. And of course the obligatory squirrels!!!! Tomorrow we will be departing...

Sep 11, 2019 - Cover Bridge to West Tanfield

16.5 Miles from Cover bridge to West Tanfield I set off from the Cover bridge inn and headed eastwards to my next planned stop, another pub; this time on the banks of the river Usk. The first part of the journey was a delightful river walk Unlike the previous day there was no great bank erosion so I didn't have to divert. Like the previous day the weather was fine and in fact sunny and hot. On my last day there was a point I had to come the wrong side of an electrified fence and then get back. I checked it was live....ouch!... Before...

Sep 10, 2019 - Aysgarth to Cover Bridge

14.3 Miles from Aysgarth to Cover bridge I began my second week of walking leaving Cornlee for a relatively short walk to Cover Bridge. Well it should have been about 12 miles but as much of it followed rivers devastated by summer floods it was more. The day was a delight to walk in, warm, dry with a minimal wind and but for a few inclines pretty flat valley walking. An early sight the wonderful Aysgarth falls. The attractive route went on past Castle Bolton, sieged in the English civil war but more famous as the place where Mary Queen of...
