Journey North 12: Uxbridge – Paddington 

19 miles, 1 lock

We’ve made it to London! 

A mostly lock free day for the last stretch into London proper.

Our Cavalcade mooring isn’t ready yet so we tied up alongside Tench just outside the entrance to Paddington station. This is particularly appropriate as Tench is on tour with Kate Saffin and Heather Wastie’s Idle Women of the Wartime Waterways show. Willow as an ex Idle Women boat (used for a short time as part of a wartime scheme to train women to steer cargo carrying narrow boats) and features in one of Heather’s pieces. Find out more about the show and the tour here

After tying up we went out for drinks and dinner with some boaters friends to celebrate Alison’s birthday, hence the late post!
