On the Douglas

These photographs were taken on Thursday 9th September from the narrowboat 'Bosworth' on the cruise from Tarleton to Preston Marina.

Videoactive are making a video record of the construction of the Link and their cameraman was also aboard. Many thanks to Dave Dawson and his son Paul for their hospitality on what was a very smooth trip.
