Willow‘s previous owner very kindly send us this lovely photo at the top lock of the Crow, where the Tat Bank branch (on the right) joins the Titford Canal, in 1990. He says that getting back down again was more difficult, but it’s great to know that Willow can get to the top! It’s wonderful to see pictures of Willow‘s past travels, and it inspires us to get out and go places ourselves.
We hope to get in a bit of boating over the Easter holidays, although our plans are not sorted yet, a dash up to the BCN is not without the bounds of possibility. It depends on many factors, including many outside our control – the weather and the resulting levels on the River Nene being the main one! But even if it’s only Bedford and back, we will go boating soon! We’ve been stuck in the same place for too long now and we’re longing to get some new waters under the hull!
