This month sees our first trip round the London Ring since 2011 and planning it has reminded me what a great little trip it is, encompassing some popular London landmarks and some that most people are not even aware of.
Contrary to our original plan, we have decided to cruise round the Ring clockwise so will be starting at Brentford Lock. This has the benefit of us arriving at the Fox in Hanwell in time for a lunchtime pint to fortify us for the Hanwell Flight, a flight of 6 locks, rising 53ft over a third of a mile. The good news is that our first day will end at Willowtree Marina which now boasts an award winning restaurant, which we are booked into for supper.
We have three boats doing this trip (so far) and plenty of room for crew to join us. Your help on Friday would be especially appreciated as the Hanwell Flight can be quite hard work, however should you wish to join us on one of the other days, you would of course be very welcome.
