Our Narrowboat Quest this vlog is our cruising journey of the Bridgewater Canal and our life aboard our narrowboat off grid.
5th November 2018
We moved from Lymm to Stockton Heath today which was a good place to pick up some provisions as shops are near the canal. The following day we had an early(for us) start, heading towards Preston Brook Tunnel, some absolutely lovely lock free scenery and cruising. It's very much a shame that under a CRT licence we only get seven days so we didn't stop as long as we would have liked.
We had been cruising for about 2 hours when the heavens opened and we had torrential rain, the next place to moor was outside Midland Chandlery under the motorway bridge so we pulled in and spent a rather noisy night under the bridge. Of course we also paid the obligatory visit to Midland Chandlery.
The next day the 7th November we continued our journey, heading towards Preston Brook Tunnel. The tunnel is single canal and is timed so that you get a 10 minute window each hour to enter the tunnel which takes approximately 20 minutes to pass through the 1239 yards going southbound and onto The Trent and Mersey Canal. The start of the next exciting chapter.
