Narrowboat Ezri- The 100 Miles Adventure – The Almost Blog

Well we made it, That’s to say Dad and Me did, Ezri however is just under a mile away and that’s because the mooring leading up to the Anderton Boat Lift are all 48 hours and the Anderton Services are being renovated so it’s better, we stay out of the way of all that. And it would be more fun to have the whole day there.

So we have come to the end of the locks so all the trip was is just a simple run to find a place to be for the time being, The last two stops we have been on pins which all very fine but the weather keeps pulling them out of the ground and when I work it seems to happen the most when I am work I was lucky this time as there was another boat behind Ezri and they tried her back into the bank and for that I thank you for that and I will be keeping the way they tied Ezri main rope as it works a little better.

We have passed through some strange, wonderful places on this adventure, from tiny 2 week village to huge city centre 2 hour moorings but the landscape here is just mind blowing first the canal so wide at so many points its almost river second are the building we have past, countless small houses, mini marines and lots of moorings but the Strangest place we have passed is the tata chemical works the whole thing is like travelling through the center of huge engine room all the sounds of the workers and the fact both sides of the canal is taken up by the factory and there is only a tiny towpath and high fencing just add to the crazy.

At one time the place was owned and run by ICI chemicals and that’s want it still called in the canal plan program on the internet. I forgot my camera (well the good one) so wasn’t able to video to get a cross just how mad this trip really was. Don’t worry as we have to come back this way so there will be video soon. But for now here are a few photos.

Next weeks Ezri 100 miles adventure will be our trip on the Anderton Boat Lift which makes the turning point of this journey and start of heading back to ‘home’ mooring. always if you have been thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for that.

Narrowboat Ezri- The 100 Miles Adventure – Driving Rain

With Hurricane Ophelia fading away and the aftermath of clear up well under way, its time to carry on the 100 miles adventure although there is only 10 miles left until we get to the anderton Boat Lift, once again work has it’s role to play in controlling the days I can move.

Thursday was moving day and boy did I pick the wrong one, the rain came and not just a little, I work in the rain most of the time. Yet this was beyond words walking to Ezri was slog in it’s self I walk some what quicker that Dad and have always been a few steps ahead but this time I was almost a mile ahead. 

In fact I was able to untie Ezri and make it to the first lock before he reached me, I was very lucky that someone was coming up so it was set for us. Dad got there and we worked the lock as the rain poured down as we did a came behind us the locks were small so they couldn’t join us. We quickly got out and Dad set it for them. In fact for four of the five the locks someone from the boat helped Dad, I wasn’t able to see the name of the boat so whoever you are thank you very much.

Just as you come out of Middlewich there is a big double lock and in fact that’s wants it called The Big Lock and so the pub next to it the only thing was after the help we had and even working our system it took time so we got wetter and wetter, We made it out of Middlewich so all the locks were done and dad went inside Ezri to change his coat and get dry.

We were half way though the trip when believe it or not were was a boat heading towards us, both of us were able to make room for each other and pass without even touching, Though the driving rain, me and Ezri floated our way around each bend, and under three of the bridges but as we got to the small fouth one there was boat come towards us we got there at the same time, and they weren’t for stopping I moved over to the right as that was the biggest space into the winding hole behind me giving them the room to come forward.

But they didn’t in fact they moved backwards diagonally across the canal so they if they moved forward they would have hit Ezri square on and they just sat there, so I had move backwards even more and then move to my left towpath side which made the big gap they had very narrow.

They then decided to straighten up rather than go into the winding hole that would have given them quite a lot of room. So I had only one option at this point which was to get off Ezri and hold her by the rope at the side of the bank they passed with only inches to spare, and at no point did they wave thank you or even acknowledge what I had done which didn’t go down very well with my dad who had few unpleasant words to say.

And when I got to the other side of the bridge, there’s was another even bigger space on the right hand side the boat could have moved into, and we could have passed in seconds and not the ten minutes it took with everyone still getting wet.

The rest of the trip was simple if a little hard to see most of the time, I wouldn’t mind seeing what it would be like down in here in the summer time. With the heavy rain it was very hard to take pictures so unfortunately I only managed to get through that worked

 That’s the Ezri adventure for this week, as always if you have been thank you for reading and I hope you can join me for the next adventure

Narrowboat Ezri- The 100 Miles Adventure – The North Wind Shall…

Now before we begin, Two things I know that Hurricane Ophelia is not the north wind but it sound better that windy day and the other is that unlike the other blogs this one takes place over two day’s.

Me and my dad have got into a pattern of moving Ezri every Tuesday is began because in the summertime most of the boaters were out and I would at work (99% of football matches take place on Saturday) So come the Autumn time we have a good working practice Saturday move Tuesday, However this fell down this week I was cat sitting for my bother and sister in law and as Manchester City are in a small competition called the UEFA Champions League and they play on a Tuesday night so to move Ezri and be at work at three in the afternoon takes some doing.

Simple just move the moving day to Monday and that’s want we did last week but this week Hurricane Ophelia wanted to play her little game, along the Southern coast of Ireland and through the Lowlands Scotland turning the sky red with ash as she went by, So weather warnings came into force and it was better just to wait the storm out, Ezri is on rings and chains in the almost the center of Middlewich so I thought it would be better just to leave her safe than out in the middle of nowhere.

And then Tuesday the aftermath the center of Middlewich and the junction Navigation was shut because of a few downed trees, so even if I wanted to move I couldn’t. I am not sure how it will take clear the trees if done by Wednesday afternoon we shall be fine

That brings us to the second of our little problems if we don’t move by the end of the week in the right direction we shall not be able to the Anderton Boat Lift when it shuts on the 5th of November coincidentally yet another day I’m at work.

There has never been a timetable for the 100 mile adventure it was just to do 100 miles and the Anderton Boat Lift was really a marker point but now we only have 10 miles left to get to the Anderton boat lift, Then make the return trip before winter really kicks in it would some what sad not complete it.

This wasn’t the blog I wanted to write at the start of the week, and its not a happy outcome or a travel story this week, but sometimes that’s how it is. 

So that’s your Ezri adventure for this week as always thank you for reading and I hope come back next week for the next one, and will find if we are heading the right way.

Post script – The Navigation notice on the Canal and River Trust website has now gone we shall see on Thursday 

Narrowboat Ezri- The 100 Miles Adventure – Room For A Little One.

Being only 35 foot long Ezri is able to move about into spaces which other boats find hard, but is also leaves her unable to moor up on less uneven sides of the footpath. So the plan to travel a set number of miles doesn’t always work out the best example being last week’s blog post about carrying on slightly further than we planned this week’s blog post is in the same type of thing we had planned to do a handful of locks and stop just around the Bend away from the small village of Malkins.

Walking to Ezri the bank looked Ok I would have to use since as there’s no barrier mooring Rings set into the ground but that would be fine done as I have done it before no problem, So that’s want I set out in my mind, The Trent and Mersey is busy water way in fact I think we incounted around 12 maybe 15 boats as we made our trip. We helped were we could and were helped in turn to. As we left one of the working double locks the single handed who was heading up floated his boat into the lock and calm as you like stepped to his left and to the middle of the locks and up the stone stairs. Pushing the lock gate shut as crossed the small bridge, Without once reaching for a rope I bet if tried that Ezri would end up bouncing around the lock or slipping out.

The only time we took is easy was when travelling under the M6 motorway with the lock just before it it’s amazing to watch all the fast moving manic traffic above you as we slowly work the lock and thinking about the people who would have done the same thing but when all that could be seen was just empty fields.

But as we carried on it became slightly obvious that the bank would not be to welcoming to Ezri so we carried on and as we came out of lock number 10 we saw mooring rings set into to the bank and a nice clean clear CRT sign saying 48 hours slowly we past this in the hope it would soon end and it did just before Wheelock Wharf there two sets of rings just past the second 48 hour sign which now pointed the way we came, using one centre pin we were able to moor up safe.

Ok so that’s your Ezri adventure for this week as always thank you for reading and I hope come back next week for the next one.

Narrowboat Ezri- The 100 Miles Adventure – Just One More…Just one.

The Trent and Mersey canal, It’s like living on the M6 motorway is not a day goes by or an hour ago by that you don’t get passed by another wonderful boat,  but that does present a little bit of a problem when moving from A to B, see the idea of this trip was to move Ezri from coppers bridge to just outside the small village of Rode Heath and matter of six locks about 2 and bit miles,

Me and Dad walked from the village to Ezri so we knew there would be space right at the end of the rings, the odd thing was even though it was very uphill walk through/pass the lock it was one more easy walks and did feel a lot shorter, we had something to eat before we started.

Getting to the first lock, we started our system, and as we worked we had another boat came behind but the lock was to small to fit both of us in, so dad let the water go and Ezri went down but as we did there was second boat but this one coming towards us, So as dad worked the lock the lady from the other boat went to talk to the boat behind us, and we carried on to the next lock, unlike the last this was set in our favorite which helped a lot,

After two small locks they become doubles so it was a case of finding which ever one was set but, sometime it was case of floating in the centre of the water pound, which was Ok but a few times I all most of got stuck in fact when the towpath changed sides I did in fact catch Ezri’s side on one of the pound walls. So it was a little tricky at sometimes. But I did get to video us working a lock, 

When came to stopping that’s were the problem started we made it but found out that the space we wanted to use was now taken up but now just by one boat but two holiday boat, one was using a mooring pin to stay in the bank it was now 2:30 in afternoon gave us time if needed it. I left dad holding Ezri so I could see if there was anymore anywhere only to find an another lock and then one after that, We couldn’t leave Ezri so we pressed on but it soon became clear that we couldn’t stop between the wide pound space and two locks became just one more, let just see wants next after that in total it was four extra 

It was only when were work last of the extra locks did meet someone coming up (the guy behind us at start of the day had now long pass us, when stopped). Dad helped them up but a little to quick for their liking but there were helpful for us to telling us about mooring space which were free. The funny thing was there are in walking distance of the real M6 motorway. 

Ok so that’s your Ezri adventure for this week as always thank you for reading and I hope come back next week for the next one.

Narrowboat Ezri- The 100 Miles Adventure – The Written Word.

Last weeks blog post went out six hours early (6:00 am not 6:00 pm) that I had planned, Which got me thinking I can manipulate my blog and its entries for any time and day, For them to be posted the middle of next year if I felt like it.

And its not just the Ezri stuff I put out I do book reviews and few other things all of which can be deleted in a split second, or if I no longer remember the passwords and have to start all over again somewhere else. The book reviews I don’t really mind losing but the Ezri stuff would be a huge heartache.

Unlike most people I don’t use YouTube as a Blog or vlog entry system it’s just random 2 minute travel videos if that and having seen that it’s not the free and open platform calls itself. I’m not going to trust it.
Now that leaves me three options ;

Copy and paste all the blog entries from very beginning, up to now and back them up onto a hard drive/USB stick and just have them sit there gathering dust, bytes or whatever.

Copy the entries into a Word document and print out every single page then I would have a collection of pages too expensive to put into a book and bind so I would have them sit in a drawer somewhere, once again gathering dust.

The solution I came up with is to hand write or rewrite all the blog post’s but not in cheap A4 paper pad with a cheap ballpoint pen but a proper leather journal so have looking around I found a fully handmade including the paper 20 cm x 15 leather journal from the Etsy shop SundaraSoul, and even a black Fountain pen to use with which came from WHsmiths.

So over the next few weeks I hope to write all the posts from here into the book and when its full get another one, slowly building into a living collection, from the very start, of words rather than just computer bytes or pages in a drawer. It doesn’t mean I want to start writing here in fact I’m going to write here first so I can check the punctuation and the spellings because when I come and write it into the book I have no way to change the once the ink touches the paper.

Well that’s just about your lot for this week and If you have done thank you for reading and next week’s log entry will be once again all about the Trent and Mersey and our trip towards the Anderton Boat Lift so I hope you can join me for that.

Narrowboat Ezri – The 100 Miles Adventure – Half a Dozen Down

This week we forge further ahead on the Trent and Mersey, At the junction we be turning left (right would take us to the Harecastle tunnel) this was easy said then done. Before we set off there were two boats tied together with one tied up and the lock landing, which as the locks are double, it didn’t present a problem I could just move to the right hand side of the canal on go down the free one. But by the time we got there and I’ve made my wide sweep to the right the boats had disappeared and I was too far wide to come in elegantly so I hit not only the bank in front of me but when I done reversing tapped the front of Ezri on the now free lock landing, So not the best of starts.

I’m not sure how many locks there are in total on the complete length of the Trent and Mersey as I only intend to do as many as it will take to get to the Anderton Boat Lift around I think twenty five. So in this journey we that is my Dad and myself will do the first six we will come across. The way the locks work on the Trent and Mersey are exactly same really is all locks you add a fill it up or empty it float in and fill it up or empty it again, The only difference is a double Chambers that’s two locks next each other one can be used for going down a one can be used for going up at the same time.

We did the first one with no issues and no problem we’ll stay down the left hand side from the mooring landing, that working a lot with the big handle windlass and me steering Ezri. But I did forget to do was to take the camera off my pocket and film because I wanted to show the fact that you travel underneath the the Trent and Mersey section which links with the Macclesfield it was only halfway through the trip when I remembered I had the phone.

There is quite a lot of room between 2nd and 3rd locked and there were a few boats made up mostly mostly holiday boats but there is enough room so that the lock emptying and filling doesn’t ground you so on the way back I might stop here. At the second was about coming the other way so they were going off as we were coming down and they were extremely helpful as the young lad on the boat open the gates so I could just sail to the lock on the left, they also pointed out further on the water would get a bit shallow as we were only going to do the first six it didn’t and hasn’t become a problem yet.

With our system in full swing with Dad setting the locks and walking a few yards ahead, I was able eventually to get the phone at my pocket and start taking pictures I even managed to take a video at some point exactly what lap and not sure because the numbers like I said don’t really correlate they not in 123 order. The Trent and Mersey actually passes the main offices well the regional offices, for the canal and River Trust so there are places where you can more up and take on water there is also a little Museum/shop thing but we didn’t have time to go and look inside maybe on the way back or in a few days I will have a look myself are there are two water points as well so that’s quite useful.

As we travelled along I think it was the fourth lock there was a volunteer who helped us though which nice and said we were about the 14th boat he’d helped. There were a few more boats than that after us so on behalf or all us thank you.

We went along to the next lock and with the system going we finished it in next to no time the rest of the journey was just a case of finding a place to Moor. Near a set of rings Ezri’s centre line being used as the Middle Rope to moor on the ring and the back and front mooring chains.

As always we left plenty of room between myself and the boat in front but half an hour after we stopped the people in front of our but decided they didn’t want to stick around so Ezri Dad and Me had a nice diner of steak pasties, pie and coffee.

So as always thank you for reading and see yo next week for the blog post

Narrowboat Ezri – The 100 Miles Adventure – What went before.

Last weeks blog post was about crossing the divide between the Macclesfield Canal and the Trent and Mersey which got me thinking, after two year on Ezri how many other canals which make up the two thousand mile length network have we completely covered.

The funny thing is that I never kept a complete record (just are few notes and Condensed diary dates) when I did the trip from Blue Water marina in Thorpe West Yorkshire to my eventual destination of Littleborough in Lancashire.

I knew my starting point and had a vague the idea of my end destination, but really no idea what was really involved, so it was one big push, afraid if I slowed down that I would have been left behind and lost from the people who were help me, But now I know better. 

Yet sad because with all the rushing about I missed all most everything and its only when I watch other people’s YouTube videos or see a Mention of a lock do I just about remember the trip, the heat from the sun as it was high in the sky and working the wood 2 by 4 paddle on the Aire and Calder, all memories which wish I could hold on to longer. 

When I do think about things its amazing that I was able with help cover so many parts of the canal network even crossing the Lancashire Yorkshire border more than once.

That’s your lot for this week, and As always thank you for reading and I hope you can join me next when head up the Trent and Mersey.

Narrowboat Ezri – The 100 Miles Adventure – Two Down, One More To Go.

The Peak Forest complete, The Macclesfield complete. So this week we head on to the Trent and Mersey, well in fact without knowing it we have done a few furlongs already. 

You would think that links between the canals happened at junctions but the link for the Macclesfield and Trent and Mersey happens at what is called a stop lock a link between systems to prevent water leakage the odd thing is that it’s not really a lot it’s two gates and it drops you about six inches in total. So deep in a secluded area of the Macclesfield just after the last water point, there it is.

But I am jumping ahead, Having walked to Ezri checked water and oil levels it was a simple case of  starting her engine and undoing her ropes then pushing off. The first part of that went fine, check, count switch off, but when I came to the middle rope I found it was lose, no big deal is happened before. Well this time the chains were not even linked into the barrier, 

Pulling the chain out the water it became clear, why one of the rings had been undone and in fact missing. as if someone had unscrewed if the D clip and left it fall in the water and the ring sinking to bottom of the canal lost. I always tie Ezri at three points so she didn’t become adrift but it still very maddening, I plan to make more than one spare next time.

After finding out all this we had wait as three boat went past one narrowboat heading up the Macclesfield one heading down and a small canoe which made waves, real hard big waves, We let them head out of our way and set ourselves.

Having been down this bit of canal it was some what easy to work out were Ezri needed to be, but half way down we came across the canoe people again which even moving Ezri out of the way rocked her a lot, the rest of the trip was nicely done and simple and it was somewhat odd to stop for the lock, It was only when made to our end point did we find out it was link between the Macclesfield and the Trent and Mersey.

So as always thank you for reading and see yo next week for the blog post

Narrowboat Ezri – The 100 Miles Adventure –  Third time Lucky

Even when I was getting wet week last week, even when I bailing out the water from the leak. I try and make things sound fun, as me and Ezri make our way around the canal network. But I don’t think with this one, the task for the day was simple one, turn around get some fuel and moor up back in the same place as I have a few days left here.

Things started out Easy, I turned Ezri’s key counted to 20 and her engine came kicking into life, we untied her ropes and Decided to leave the change as we were coming back to the morning, I worked out there was space a few feet head so we could use that to turn around in, I was able to come in and Dad got off rope in hand all we needed to do was move backwards Dad would then pull Ezri around I would then head to the fuel pump at the Marina.

Well first Ezri didn’t want to go backwards despite having about a foot of spare space behind her and when dad tried to push her back that didn’t work. We tried a second time only to get stuck and Ezri’s tiller arm smacking me in the stomach so there was nothing for it but to head up the network and find bigger space.

The second one we found was a lot wider so we tried again but once again Ezri didn’t want to go backwards despite my best efforts, and Dad holding her front rope telling me which way to move Ezri’s tiller but it didn’t work I got a second whack for my trouble and Ezri started making odd sounds. Which is never a good sign so the there was nothing for it but to go deeper.

Now by this point I was in a little of pain and Dad was getting tried of walking and pulling, So right in the center of the bend we tried again slowly and only just making it this time,facing the right way heading back to the Marina Dad got on and off we went Ezri was not happy one bit. She kept fighting me, it was if I was running thought sand we did make it to the Marina and got some fuel want we got in total I can’t really remember as I was still too focused on the fact that he was being a bit of a pain in the backside.

I thought that after all that messing about was over when headed out but no, Ezri had one last trick to keep us on our toes she decided to almost hit the boat to her left as we came down the canal back to the mooring and then overshoot the mooring place and we had to drag back quite a few feet. Not only that but the mooring chains for decided to lodge themselves within the steel work of the barrier.

We move again on Friday I just Ezri is a better frame of mind, as I don’t want have start fighting her again.
