Oakfield’s travels.


This is our map of the canals and rivers with the ones we have cruised picked out in black. As you can see we have crawled all over it at snail pace up to Chester/Manchester (top left) Stoke on Trent/Birmingham (centre), Nottingham/Market Harborough (over on the right)  and down to Gloucester, Oxford and London/Paddington (shown across the bottom left to right) The rivers we have cruised are the Weaver, Soar, Trent, Avon, Severn and Cherwell. We have also enjoyed exploring up ‘the arms’ leading off from the main canals. Ashby (Steam Trains), Coventry, Caldon (more Steam Trains), (to Leek and Froghall, Erewash, and along the Peak Forest Canal to Bugsworth/Waleybridge. We particularly enjoyed the Droitwich and Sharpness Canals. As we were interested in Industrial Archaeology we very much enjoyed mooring in Bugsworth Basin too. There are also many more places left to discover.
