Vlog 199: The Turn Off The Macc

The northern end of the Macclesfield canal was in sight (well, about six miles away) and a beautiful day dawned so the engine was engaged and the boat chugged along up to Marple where, at a T-junction, you meet the Peak Forest canal. I turned right and headed south along the Upper Peak Forest, just a little way to find somewhere to stop.

  1. I just recently found your vlog and have watched a couple of dozen so far, I have to say I am really enjoying them. The next time I come to the UK (from Canada) I would love to spend a week or so on one of those Narrowboat hotels.
    Keep up the wonderful work.


  2. Hi David,
    Stunning scenery indeed, makes me long for the next season. Thoroughly enjoyed this episode. And by the way, it was a cormorant you spotted, we have lots of them here in the Netherlands. You should see them hunting in flocks, amazing sight.
    Kind regards, Jobim

  3. I would’ve asked, Did you miss Marple?

    …but you didn’t.

    …so I won’t.

    Three apostrophes instead.

  4. Lyme View Marina looked quite nice, a most picturesque spot to moor up for the Winter. I also loved the large house right where you turned onto the Peak Forest Canal and the drone footage at the end really shows off the beauty of England. Well done !
