Rain stopped play.

Still moored at Cheshunt on the Lea Navigation.

The weather man got the forecast right with rain all day. We had made allowances for such an event so didn't have to travel today. Instead we caught up on a few jobs that had been waiting for such a rainy day.

I have had a look at the waterway map and worked out that we will visit canal's in the North West sector of the country next year. Hopefully this will cover the following canals, Coventry, Ashby, Birmingham & Fazely, Stratford upon Avon, rivers Severn & Avon, Staffs & Worcester, Worcester & Birmingham, the BCN, Grand Union North,Llangollen & Montgomery, Shropshire and Trent & Mersey.

Our travels next year will start earlier than they did this year  but of course weather and maintenance stoppages will dictate when and which order we will navigate them all. We also have not managed to get out on the Fens between Northampton and Cambridge and Bedford so we may back track at some stage to fit this area into the schedule.

763 locks, 1057.5 miles, 29 Tunnels, 39 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
