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.

Another One Gone.

Saturday, 17th, December, 2011.

This is the Plough at Huddlesford Junction on the Coventry Canal which has been closed since the end of September, we were in here on the Friday before the "Huddlesford Gathering" weekend a couple of days before it closed and thought it was expensive, £10 for a plate of pasta covered with a sauce, beer at £3.50 a pint comes as a bit of a shock to us Wetherspooner's. The Plough tried to be an up market dining pub which obviously didn't work.

The owners, Enterprise Inns have a guide rent of £38,000 p.a. for it on their website and claim it is under offer.

The new Kings Orchard Marina just down the Canal from the Plough may bring a bit more business for the pubs new tennants when they re-open but it looks a long way off yet, this was the state of play last Monday with builders working on the service block/office.

I took this picture from the towpath, notice the freshly cut thorn hedge, this can only mean one thing for a towpath cyclist, and it did.

Infuriating, isn't it? I wonder how the horses coped. There'll be a post from me about that later this evening.

Make a formal complaint to BW. The contractors or the farmer are suposed to clear it up so you dont get punctures.
