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.

Around Braunston.

Sunday, 25th September 2011.
Moored at Braunston.

Walking around Braunston Marina and the Junction today, here are a few pictures.

The 1937 Narrowboat Dover, subject of a Television Series about it's rebuild in 2005, perhaps the rebuild wasn't that good after all as it's now out of the water having the hull over-plated.

The large property at the Junction is going to auction, guide price £190,000 +, it doesn,t seem to have any road access though.

Couldn,t find any info on Savills website about it.

Move over Fatty

A Broad beam boat came down from Wigrams Turn and moored outside Midland
 Swindlers Chandlers, they didn,t come past us so they must have gone back towards Wigrams.

There's been a Lock Keeper on duty at Braunston bottom lock this weekend to ensure that 2 boats share the double locks to save water, I walked up and spoke to him this afternoon, I asked if there was someone at the top lock telling boaters to share the locks but surprisingly there wasn't, so you could come down the locks on your own but not go up !! we will find out in the morning when we go up the flight.
