Vlog 89: Soar Winner

Here it is, the big crescendo to the River Soar trip – coming out at the end where it meets the Trent. Then I turn onto the Trent, and head onto the Trent & Mersey canal for continuing my Big 2017 Tour.

  1. Come on,where’s the next one. can’t wait

  2. Another excellent video, more so because we are still moored at Sawley Cut, enjoying the sunshine. Enjoy the T&M!

  3. Another great vlog! The grand tour is turning out to be grand indeed! I was interested to hear you say you liked the widebeams that were in the video. How are they different than widebeam narrowboats that you’ve mentioned, with some derision, in earlier vlogs?

    • Widebeam narrowboats tend to look just like ordinary narrowboats but stretched sideways. Quite “slabby” in my view. Those other ones are more like Dutch barges, more boaty-looking, prettier, if that makes any sense. Not just a big fat oblong with rounded-off corners!
