After seeing us in our TV debut “Building Britain’s Canals” on Channel 5 last week, Moonstruck was booked for a last minute weekend break. When they returned they said how much they enjoyed it and enquired about availability for the Autumn! It just so happened that I saw them at Pewsey Wharf and took this… Read More


Today whilst walking my dog to the canal, I passed Moonfleet looking splendid in the morning summer sunshine. A lazy Sunday morning with the birds singing and even the summer cherries looking so delicious along the towpath.

Smart new dim-out curtains in blue have just been hung on… Read More


 Today I was asked “How long does it take to get through a lock?” Well we usually suggest about 15 minutes, perhaps a few minutes more if you’re new to the canal. Last week, Poppy, Jules and myself took Moonfleet down the 19 locks in just under four and a half hours (including mooring up… Read More
