Inland Waterways of Britain

Since our return to Britain in 1980, we have taken family holidays almost every year on the canals and rivers of England and Wales.

Here are a few links to Inland Waterway related sites:

Now that we have more leisure time, we have had a narrowboat built to our specification and intend to spend more time on the waterways.

Our narrowboat, Elektra, is 57ft (17.4m) long and 6ft 10in (2.08m) wide.

The shell was built by Jonathan Wilson and the boat was fitted out by Louis and Joshua Boatbuilders Ltd.

Elektra is very similar to Whisper on which it is broadly based.

Pictures of Elektra, taken during its construction, can be found here.
