The story…. Purchased these batteries on the 1st May, 2016, most specifically because of their ‘3 year warranty’, (which has now risen to 4!). Great deal for £70 each, you would think. Here’s the bumf I read before buying the batteries for my narrowboat. A 4 year warranty! No ‘huge demand’ appliances, such as heater […]
Took a walk down to Burbage wharf, just before it started tipping down rain.
Tried to stop in ‘Clench’. The water bankside was just too shallow. Lots of overhanging trees, and a thin towpath. Didn’t bother, after a couple of minutes pushing myself out of the mud, took the 2 mile or so journey to Wootton Rivers. Wootton Rivers There’s some winter moorings here, water points and disposal.

Having not written a blog for a while; my status has changed slightly. I’ve moved down the road, from Devizes to somewhere called Pewsey. It’s a small town on the Avon. CRT rules state you have to move neighbourhood every two weeks, unless you have ‘permanent moorings’. Currently, this applies to me. Canal and River […]
