The journey so far

(viewed 1042 times)
Sunday was Rufford to Abram, a village outside Wigan. Monday night was in central Manchester. On Tuesday we did 27 locks in the pouring rain to reach Ashton-under-Lyne. On Wednesday we went to Ikea, bought a table and chairs and then went all the way to Macclesfield! Yesterday was spent getting to Congleton and tomorrow it'll be Kidsgrove.

The great narrowboat adventure

(viewed 832 times)
I'm buying a narrowboat to live on in Cambridge whilst I do a PhD. It's being surveyed today - so I hope there's nothing seriously wrong with it. If the survey's okay, I should complete the sale in the next few days.
