Vlog 108: Spa – take us!

Moving the narrowboat from the top of lock 2 on the Droitwich Barge canal (near Hawford Junction) and up to Droitwich Spa itself. I end up on the visitor moorings at Netherwich basin and go for a walk around Vines Park.

  1. Another spiffing video. Do we detect an elevated vocal delivery? Is that owing to the presence of a Waitrose in the film?
    Splendid all round. Must venture that way sometime.
    Isn’t there a new marina there?

    • Not new exactly, Droitwich marina’s been open for a while now but yes, if you carry on East through the swing bridges, under the (very low!) M5 culvert and out to Hanbury direction you would get to Droitwich marina.

  2. A map at beginning of each video, and a general canal map here, will help us orient ourselves as we follow along.
    Besides wondering in your colorful language ( flocks of cows) I am using your adventures to select where to hire and which places to move down the list.
    A bit of time spent with any basic book on seamanship and navigation would help elevate your comments.. like it or not you are educating folk who will venture out for the first time in a narrow boat.
    So understanding basic right of way, signals and such ..while it might make you angry with the behavior of other boaters, could be a boon to others.
    My Walter Mitty Cup runneth over.. thanks for the extensive look at so many canals.

    • I don’t intend putting maps up, I don’t think they really add any useful context to anyone who doesn’t already know the area. Besides, I list plenty of place names which are left as an exercise for the viewer to Google. You can find a general canal map at the Canal and River Trust website.

      I don’t understand your comment about a book on seamanship and navigation “elevating” my comments. Firstly such texts are largely inappropriate to the inland canals and secondly I am quite sufficiently aware of the relevant boat-handling requirements and rights of way. Thirdly this is a personal vlog, not a tutorial.
