You can have a " Willow Too"!

Julie & Geoff have put Willow Too up for sale, see below for the link.  A beautiful Beacon boat, very well looked after, they have decided to look for a ex-working boat hence the sale.

Foxton Locks- more photos

We had another walk that included the locks at Foxton on Friday, work us well underway, locks and side ponds drained and new gates replaced on some locks.  Quite surprised at the depth of some areas of the side ponds and channels!

There is an open weekend for anyone interested on 10th & 11th February.

Foxton Locks work underway

The work has started on the locks at Foxton.  New lock gates being lifted by a very nifty remote controlled crane today from a work barge in the lock.











It being for a change, a beautiful morning, the prospect of sanding down woodwork at the house palled somewhat. So an amble from Foxton to Debdale had a certain appeal. It is still quite novel having such an iconic location now on our doorstep.
