The narrowboat is owned by the Wirral Community Narrowboat Trust, a charitable organisation crewed by trained volunteers.
We sailed past Waverton, and admired the houses whose gardens run right down to the water's edge. Then we left suburbia behind and slid through open countryside, passing by a long, long line of narrowboats with permanent moorings. It was like a floating village, some of the moorings being equipped with wind-power and solar-power systems. Some narrowboats were cheerfully painted, others had more sombre colour schemes, a few looked rather rusty, while others' roofs were crammed with culinary plants or bright annuals.
Everyone found it fascinating, and the trip was greatly enjoyed by all in the group.
