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.

Progress at Kings Orchard Marina.

Thursday, 29th November 2012.
Kings Bromley Marina.

Out cycling again today, first stop was to check on rumours of logs left by contractors working for the national grid who had felled a sycamore tree which was getting close to power cables, unfortunately most of the wood had gone and what was left wasn't worth bringing the boat out of the marina to collect, still you can't win them all.

Maffi's Boat, spotted on my travels today.
A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the new Kings Orchard Marina which is being built at Streethay near Lichfield, work had completely stopped with no personnel or plant equipment on site.

After another visit today I can report that things are moving again with work to divert the towpath over a bridge which will become the marina entrance. I'd like to think that the M.D. read our blog and thought he had better get on with it, but that would be complete fantasy.

New towpath.
Leading to the new bridge.
The approaches to the bridge will have steel railings either side when finished, an identical bridge and railings are fitted at Fazeley Mill Marina which was built by the same company.
Work on the marina entrance.
Next stop was Alrewas, the river section is still closed, the water level has only dropped a couple of inches since Saturday.
Lock mooring below Alrewas lock, still a bit damp.
