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.

More Mooring Space at Fradley ?

Tuesday 23rd October 2012.
Kings Bromley Marina.

Yesterday I was out cycling, first stop was Fradley Junction to watch the dredgers at work, lots of activity around there, the most noticeable being the removal of the short finger pontoons adjacent to the CaRT maintenance yard and cafe, these pontoons were occupied by small fibre glass cruisers but for the last year or so only two of the berths were being used.

Just the supports left now with a dredger operating in the background,
also in the background are two small cruisers which were moored on the
pontoons, now tied up on the visitor moorings.

I asked the dredger operator what was happening but he didn't know "We're not told anything" was his reply. I'll report any progress through the winter.

The Cheese Boat at Fradley, moored by the swing bridge.
My next stop was the new marina by Streethay, well, more of a deserted muddy hole in the ground, but that's for the next blog.
