This is Part 1 (probably of 3) of my trip from Kings Orchard Marina on the Coventry Canal, round to North Kilworth Marina on the Leicester line of the Grand Union canal, where the boat would be put up for sale
It’s been a difficult decision but for the various reasons outlined in this rather long talking-head chatty video, I am selling my narrowboat and moving back to a house – at least for a while.

In October last year, I produced a video documenting the restoration efforts of the Cotswold Canals Trust. One of the major projects they were facing was the need for a tunnel / bridge to let their canal go under a railway line at Stonehouse near Stroud. That was done over Christmas so I popped back for a quick update.
In October last year (2021), my friends Jo and Michael (plus dog George) completed a four year epic trip around every navigable mile of the connected UK canal network. Along with many of their viewers, I went along to document the final five miles.
In some of my early cruising videos I would moan about how much over-hanging vegetation there is along the canals but it turns out there’s a load of work going on behind the scenes in winter to cut the bad stuff back. This is a look at that work.
