Home at Furness Vale

Friday 11 September. 5 1/2 miles.

In to Marple this morning to buy the last few things on my DIY list. Diana did her favorite Marple, Charity shop. Made it back to the marina by 1600 to a welcome from members of the Furness vale Boat Club (FVBC) and others on the Marina. Tonight was the first FVBC meeting of the winter which we attended to hear stories of others travels. Once again we had done the most miles and been away the longest this summer. I received devastating news. the local chippie closed down a month ago and I had been looking forward to a couple of their meals this week. It was one of the best we have tried in England. I wonder what will close next year as the Post office/corner shop closed last year while we were traveling.


  1. Congratulations on completing your circumnavigation of the canals. Guess soon your minds will be turning homeward.

  2. What are your plans? We are heading North to the Lancaster mid june then Liverpool 1-8 July. Thence Leeds and Liverpool canal and either Hebble Calder Rochdale or Huddersfield narrow to return south.
