Too cold for Louise

Published: Wednesday, 07 March 2018

JOURNALIST Louise Burke thought she  would try living on a narrowboat during winter, and found it too cold!

It was two weeks ago that she took her narrowboat out of a marina after stocking up will fuel for the boat's stove, mooring at Cassiobury Park on the Grand Union Canal on the outskirts of Watford.

Fuel soon depleted

But alas that so called 'Beast from the East' arrived and very soon her stock of fuel had depleted, her attempting to keep the boat warm, so it was a mile trudge for more fuel, carrying the bag on her shoulder, with the comment from the supplier that 'you will be back'—and she was!

The canal was soon frozen and the cold took over, and poor Louise was not at all impressed!
