Learn about ‘Life Afloat’ on the Kennet & Avon Canal

Posted: February 2, 2012 in My News

The latest edition of Wiltshire Magazine features a piece I wrote about life on the Kennet & Avon Canal.

Thousands of people live on canal boats throughout Britain. In fact, there are more boats on Britain’s canals now than at any point during the Industrial Revolution. The fact that living on a boat is generally cheaper than living on land is one reason behind this. As is the enduring popularity of Britain’s waterways.

But what is life like on the canal? Is it very cold in the winter? Is it as fun as it looks? I interviewed the owners of three boats to find out.
