Annual Report

It's the end of our third year of owning Briar Rose, and -- after a dip last year because of family circumstances -- our usage has gone back up again.

During the year we spent 95 nights on board, which equals our first year of ownership.  Our Big Trip last September was the longest time we've spent on board in one go, at four weeks.

We travelled 843 miles in the year, and passed through 534 locks; that's a few miles short of our annual record, but a new high for locks and lock/miles. 

Waterways travelled on were:
  • Ashton Canal
  • Bridgewater Canal
  • Coventry Canal
  • Grand Union Canal Mainline
  • Grand Union Canal Leicester Section
  • Grand Union Canal Wendover Arm
  • Macclesfield Canal
  • Manchester Ship Canal
  • North Oxford Canal
  • Peak Forest Canal
  • River Soar
  • River Trent
  • River Weaver
  • Rochdale Canal
  • Shropshire Union Canal
  • Staffs and Worcs Canal
  • Trent and Mersey Canal

Considering you are both still at work you do squeeze in a lot of boating! Makes boat owning worth it doesn't it?
