This week we travelled to Bugsworth Basin on The Peak Forest Canal.
We collected our daughter, Jessica, on the way so she could travel through the Harecastle Tunnel and spend the rest of the day with us. Being collected by narrowboat from her workplace was quite a novelty and we all had a great time.
We had planned to have our Kabola boiler serviced at Bugsworth, little did we know that it was the annual Bugsworth Steam Party – What a bonus!!
There were traction engines, vintage cars, historic Narrowboats, shire horses and a fairground organ. It certainly got busy.
We had a great weekend and our friends Angus & Janet also came to visit us.
Also bumped into Martin Fuller who was there with his boat Cutter and then another surprise visitor, Roger & Teresa Fuller came to say hello. Lots of cups of tea, biscuits and chatter not to mention some wine with my “drinking partner” Angus, all made for a very enjoyable weekend.
