Yelvertoft Marina

On Thursday 19/5 we departed Welford after topping up the water at the end of the arm. As we winded we saw a narrowboat belonging to the Mikron theatre who travel the waterways putting on shows. There is to be a beer festival at the Wharf Inn in mid June and the Mikron are booked to perform.


During our time at Welford we explored the reservoirs that feed water into the canal system, and following our exercise we sampled the pub food on offer.



After passing through the single lock we arrived at the junction turning left for Yelvertoft, then enjoying a two half hour cruise through the countryside. We took up a mooring just after bridge 21 and this would be my spot whilst the two legged crew abandoned ship for the weekend. Myself and the furry crew member spent the weekend doing our chores ( relaxing ) and also doing a spot of fishing.


On Wednesday 25/5 the ships company back to full strength we made the short hop to Yelvertoft marina and our pre booked berth for the week. We are now safely secured and looking forward to visiting the Crick Boat Show.
