|On this chilly but dry February morning, Emily Bronte chugs into the mouth of the 3,057 yards long Blisworth tunnel.|
Goodbye Milton Keynes, Thanks for your super Cycle path network, clean and dry towpaths and plenty of space to moor. We won't forget our Christmas ice skating too
|Entering the tunnel , thinking it would be deserted , on this grey mid winters day, a light shone out from the depths, a boat was approaching from the other end! this would involve a tricky passing manoeuvre with only inches to spare.|
Emily slowed as the light shone brighter, inching past without touching the tunnel sides, both crews , gave a cheery shout.
|The rain of the last mouth appeared to have waited for Emily Bronte's approach, torrents of water came cascading down like a circular waterfall from the air shafts, mostly missing the crew !|
|A ghostly image emerging from the northern portal.|
|Gayton junction, starboard to Northampton and the Fens (August 2014) turn to port for Braunston and beyond. Port for us today.|
