Blue Lias, Stockton, Southam, Warwickshire.
Every year about this time, a group of like minded, boating enthusiasts, get together for a catch up and to eat drink and make merry. We are all members of ‘Cutweb’ a virtual boating club and we meet via the internet at a newsgroup set up for entertainment, interest, information and to help each other in anything boaty.
Our website is here:- http://www.cutweb.org.uk/
Normally, Wendy and I would take our own narrowboat and make a holiday out of the trip to and from Stockton. A round trip of a couple of hours by car is a couple of weeks by boat. We arrived at 1.30pm. This year we had to be back on Sunday morning for a function. Brenda and Graham Keens on Narrowboat Jannock kindly gave us a bed for the night.
There are a large number of pictures, which hopefully, do not need much introduction.
