Vlog 149: The Sleeping Cow

Filmed in the last week of September 2018, this was the last part on my autumn cruise in which I headed south; the plan always was to turn around at the end of the month and go back. For logistical reasons – LOTS of upcoming locks! – it also made sense to do a 180 degree turn at this point.

Vlog 147: What’s the Buzz?

In my continuing narrowboat adventures for autumn 2018 I finally exit Milton Keynes and out into the countryside through Soulbury and down towards Leighton Buzzard and Linslade, where I stop to restock my food supplies at a very handy mooring next to a supermarket, then go on to the countryside again, almost not getting a mooring due to low water levels.

Vlog 146: Stormy Denials

After a few days at different places in Milton Keynes, it was time for me to move on but the weather had different ideas and a tree across the canal put paid to movement for an evening. Eventually I was able to get going again and back out into the countryside, ending up near Stoke Hammond.

Vlog 143: September Sun

My autumn jaunt along the Grand Union canal continues as I take the boat from Stoke Bruerne (where I can’t get a decent 4G mobile signal) towards Cosgrove but I end up mooring in the lovely countryside. En route there’s an awful lot of pretty countryside to stare at.

Vlog 141: Wiggly Bits

Another little jaunt along the Grand Union canal in the narrowboat saw me departing from Weedon after a pleasant couple of days, and heading towards Gayton Junction. I stopped about a mile before Gayton though so as to stop in the countryside.

Vlog 140: Southbound

In the second of my Autumn cruising videos for 2018, I leave Norton Junction on a blustery morning and turn 90 degrees right, to head south down the Grand Union canal on my narrowboat. The first thing to deal with is the Buckby lock flight of seven locks, then it’s just a couple of miles to a mooring at Weedon Bec.
