Nether Heyford -> Stowehill

Nether Heyford -> Stowehill

Pig’s hill. Don’t see many pigs around, certainly not seen any on the towpath…. Stowehill Has a nice view down to Flore, the opposing village, separated by the River Nene, just in it’s infancy here. Took some images out across the valley. I scouted the area, as I always scout the area before a move. The two important things to consider are Access:- You could be in the prettiest spot in the world. Fine until you need to use the…

Gayton -> Nether Heyford

Gayton -> Nether Heyford

Quite a long trek. Mooring between Bugbrooke and Gayton There isn’t really any mooring in Bugbrooke, unless you want to stop outside the pub. The rest of the journey is along ‘reclaimed bank’. This is where the towpath has been eroded and re-supplemented with new soil and sandbags, then re-seeded and allowed to grow. The general effect for boaters is an unstable, un-constituted bank which you can’t trust with your feet and you definitely shouldn’t drive pins into. The only…

Blisworth Arm -> Gayton

Blisworth Arm -> Gayton

Yes. Meadows. These ones with sheep, horses and the odd duck and goose thrown in. In the middle of no-where basically. I’ve been here since Sunday, but I had to work on Sunday due to the weather being so abysmal during the week. I only managed to get out on that one day. Today it improved somewhat, and I popped my head out and took some photos.

List of dead bankers 2018 – conspiracy update

**Update March/April 2018 Changed the dates and included some more up-to-date references for the banker deaths. New deaths added. **Update October 2017 There was a number of deaths in 2017, most of them I picked up second hand. As I’ve said before, I try to stick to the main players. I’ve added the deaths for this year to the list. **Update October 2016 Yep. The list keeps growing. Just focusing on major players, or cases where ‘foul-play’ may be involved….

Gayton Junction -> Blisworth Arm

Gayton Junction -> Blisworth Arm

Not much of a move, but I’m on a different canal now. Blisworth Arm. Leads to the River Nene which has been non-navigable for the last few weeks. I believe it’s calming down now, and the boats are starting to come past me again. Blisworth Arm It’s very quite here. The bird sing a lot. Last night, there was a fox or some feral animal scouting around the bank side of the boat. Owls screeched in the trees. I suppose…

Blisworth -> Gayton Junction

Blisworth -> Gayton Junction

This is my new location, commonly named ‘Gayton Junction’. I was here last year, only under the A43 flyover, listening to the cars and trains and painting my boat during the day. The boat is painted now, and I don’t have to stay under the flyover. You can see Bonnie on the picture if you look closely… Rain Today it’s raining, as has been the pattern for the last 2-3 weeks to a month. As I’m not at work, I…

Stoke Bruerne -> Blisworth

Stoke Bruerne -> Blisworth

Arrived on Sunday. Moved through the tunnel, across the snow covered wastelands of Northampton. Most of the journey is underground, through the Blisworth tunnel, which is if I remember rightly, a little over a mile. Now located in Blisworth, where I will stay for the next couple of weeks. Blisworth is OK. It’s got a pub and a Post Office, which acts as a shop for the odd loaf of bread etc. There are many friendly ducks and wild foul…

Nether Heyford -> Stoke Bruerne

Nether Heyford -> Stoke Bruerne

I’ve been here for a week now. Due to life events of one type or another, haven’t got round to updating the blog until today. Stoke Bruerne Last stop before you go into Buckinghamshire. Stoke Bruene is at the top of a set of six locks. Not wanting to go down the six locks, I’ve located myself at the top near to the narrow-boat museum. The village itself is fairly small. It’s entirely filled with parking restrictions, be it in…

Armed robbery Nether Heyford post office

So…. Went to get my bread this morning. Couldn’t drive, the weather being cold, snowy and inclement. I walked down to Nether Heyford post office and stores in the village. I could see they had the shutter down on the left side. As I got closer, I could see a Police cordon. Initially, I thought it was over the disabled ramp due to the ice, but as I looked closer I could see it was over both entrances. The shop…
