A half-term visitor: Lola the country puppy.
We’ve got a solid fuel stove on board with a back boiler connected to a calorifier. The calorifier supplies hot water to the boat and a heating circuit to two radiators.
In time we’ll upgrade all the pipework so that we can pressurise the system to improve the effectiveness and efficiency.

The wheelhouse used to be collapsible to enable the barge to pass under low bridges. It is now a permanent fixture that we’re going to clear out and turn into a usable living area in Spring 2014.
Bed and breakfast on the top deck.
One of the sleeping cabins. The barge is double beam so it’s surprisingly large, for a barge. We’ll be sure to make the bed before we take photos in future.
One of the first things we did when we bought the barge was raise the Northumberland flag.
