I have set this blog up to record my time in Stoke Bruerne. I bought 2 Canalside Cottages on 26-April-13 and moved in (after some renovation) on 28-June-13. I hope to record the times and events of living to Stoke Bruerne (and I hope I can contribute to the village during my time).
I have a narrowboat (see Leo No2 blog) which I will moor at Blisworth but would like to try and moor in Stoke Bruerne if possible.

Getting ready for Village at War weekend
The cleaned up lock
Well two things happened yesterday. I spent the morning in the company of some local people, including Dave Blagrove (Chairman of the friends of the Canal Museum), to clear out the summer weeds from the disused top lock (and the inevitable mess from the removal of the boat weighing machine). It does look so much better now - one of those quick jobs that has a huge effect.
The bucket in place it will be locked!
Also my WWII fire bucket (won on EBay) arrived so that's ready to sit outside my front door over the Village at War weekend.
