My ears pricked up when I heard a steam whistle, so I dashed up to Norton Junction to see that it was Keith and Andy on their Steam Tunnel Tug “Hasty”. As it is such a lovely quiet boat I could hold a conversation with them quite easily from the towpath

Here they are in the top lock of the Buckby flight heading down to Stoke Bruerne. The last time I photographed them they were at Hawksbury Junction, a short distance away from their home mooring. Since then the fitting out of Hasty’s interior had been completed.

The bacon was cooking very slowly in the frying pan on the top of the boiler as they descended the lock with another boat.

Then they were away to do the other six locks en-route to the IWA Canalway Cavalcade, Little Venice, Paddington in London May 4-6 .
