Blisworth Tunnel Bicentenary

On June 17-19th we took Albert up to Stoke Bruerne to join in the celebrations. Great event well organised by the Northampton IWA. It was blessed by good weather and large crowds. There were over 50 working boats on show and they were joined by over 160 private boats. A weekend to remember, especially as we invited our friends from Norfolk and Yorkshire to join us for a Watling Way First School Staff Reunion.
