I was invited to join Burghfield Island Boat Club on the Kennet & Avon canal at Reading to see what they get up to. It’s a not for profit, member-run organisation that provides moorings and boater facilities as well as a big social environment.
My ‘canal wife’ Lorna and I continue our voyage down the Thames in a former Norfolk Broads hire boat, in this episode going from Reading to Windsor where the trip ended.
A long-standing viewer offered me and my “canal wife” (aka good friend) Lorna the use of his boat on the upper River Thames for a few days – thanks Ed! – which we were delighted to accept. This is the first of two videos of that trip.
