We Made It To York!

Last Summer we took our first big cruise from South Yorkshire to York in our floating home.  By car it would take around an hour to get to York from where we have our permanent mooring in South Yorkshire, but on our canal boat last summer, we enjoyed a leisurely week or so of cruising, with a few exciting moments and experiences along the way, a truly enjoyable cruise along, approximately 19 miles of the industrial South Yorkshire Navigation, 6 miles of the very straight, yet interesting New Junction Canal with it’s, quite different swing and lift Bridges, then 9 miles of the Aire and Calder Navigation with it’s stretching views over the English countryside.  We then met the tranquility of the Selby Canal, with it’s 5 miles of Continue reading “We Made It To York!”

I wrote this post last May, before we’d sold the house and moved onto the boat.  We are so looking forward to cruising soon as work commitments and other practicalities have delayed us, but in the mean time it was nice to have a look back at one of our favourite trips.  It was also our cats maiden voyage…

Posted May 2017 – With a long Bank holiday weekend behind us, Jon and I had asked ourselves the question…a short jaunt in Polly the camper van or a little trip out in the canal boat? Continue reading “#Throwback Thursday – A cheeky little canal cruise to Sprotbrough – And relax…”
