No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

What Lies Beneath

When we Cruised the Grand Union Canal through Milton Keynes last year we thought how nice it was for an urban Canal, but there have been some dodgy goings on down there, when the Milton Keynes branch of the Inland Waterway Association had a Canal Clean-up at the beginning of April they dragged out 12 tons of rubbish, amongst the usual shopping trolleys and bikes they removed 2 telescopic sighted rifles and a blown safe !!

More delays for boaters hoping to cruise the North Oxford Canal between May 9th to 19th, British Waterways are closing the Canal so that a bridge can be demolished, it has fallen into such a state of decay that it has become a danger to boaters and anyone else around, Punch Taverns who own the bridge have known about the stability problems since November 2008.
