The Rickmansworth Canal Festival – 15 May 2010
Only £1.30 took us by tube to Rickmansworth, and a whole different world, at their annual canal festival. Over a hundred narrow boats moored up to four deep, lined the tow-path and had obviously put a lot more effort into getting there than we had.
The canal-boat community had turned on an old-fashioned village fair, with food, stalls selling crafts, music a narrow boat tug-of-war and even Morris dancers.
It was a very pleasant laid-back type of day out, with many narrow boats to admire, and even briefly toy with the idea of buying one!
