Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Islington Tunnel

This is the entrance to the Islington Tunnel which carries the Regent's Canal for 878m underneath the Angel area of Islington.There is no towpath through the tunnel so walkers like myself have to follow a trail of markers above ground which follow the route of the canal.

  8. Nice reflections. I'm wondering how boats used the canal with no towpath.

  9. I presume boats would have to be legged through the tunnel.

  10. We booked a day cruise along the Regent's Canal with a very interesting couple...Loved every moment of it and absolutely fell in love with Canal boats (I wanted to live on one forever). Anyway I remember this tunnel very well ... we went back by bus or train or whatever to several of the places we saw along the cruise ...Camdenin your post above was one of those.
