Fantastic Capture of the Boat and the canal, just the right size!!!!!!, Geoff, Do they live on these boats?????

Hi Glen, thanks, some people live on them and some hire them to have holidays/vacations on. I spoke to that couple on the boat and they were from Brisbane in Australia, spending five weeks here in the UK and most of that time on the narrow boat in the photo, travelling along UK canals....the canals originally were dug and created to transport coal, iron etce tc during the industrial revolution.

A beautifully decorated water home !! Are there possibilties to visit interesting places or do people stay on the boat all along Geoff ??

There are many opportunities to moor the boat up along the way.They can visit pubs,local sights or even stay somewhere else for a few nights and lock the boat up...:))

There is much to see in the photo. You have already answered most of my questions to Ruth and Glenn, but I'm curious what the man and woman are doing in this photo. Look like the fellow is opening a gate??? Are there locks along the canals? I would love to spend a month on one of these boats, just motoring along seeing the sites. The weather seems to be very nice.

Hi larry..if you have a minute watch the video it shows how the English locks operate.
