Another pic of a canal & narrow boat that always cheers me up. We bought Welsh cheese from a boat at Stoke Bruherne. The owner said he travelled up & down the canals....what a life !!

Was it not Maggie, Maureen ?

I can’t find a timetable online, Britboy, but the Facebook page gives its next location a day or two in advance: https://www.facebook.com/candy.boat.79

Good photo, thanks Mick :o)

I couldnt believe how many people just had to buy a big bag of toffee from this barge at 10 times more than you would pay at ASDA

Perhaps people like the idea of a boat that sells toffee Mick and are willing to pay extra to support the business.

Roy, it was Maggie,you're a belter.

I wonder if there is any evidence of Chocolate Bounty among their wares.

It was Maggie.

Helen,I'd love to live on a boat,to be able to go where you wanted would be a dream.I know the drawbacks but they could be overcome.
