25th June - 2nd July 2016

The intrepid narrowboating crew of international fame, are setting off on yet another adventure into the unknown this Saturday 25th June.  Against advise, they are going to attempt a reverse anticlockwise transverse of the Warkwickshire Ring with an dangerous diversion onto a section of the rarely used Stratford Canal.   A total of 119 locks must be operated on their journey of 103.5 miles in just one week!!   The crew chose to ignore advise about avoiding such obstacles as the Hillmorton Locks, Fazeley Junction and the 39 locks on the section into Birmingham beneath the mighty M6 Spaghetti Junction.   The flight of 21 giant double locks, on the Grand Union Canal, known as "The Hatton Flight" will need to be conquered before they can reach their destination, breaking even more records in the world of Extreme Narrowboating.
