Latest News, Memories And Plans

We are down at Devizes Wharf for a couple of days. It means John can shop at Devizes Market which is excellent and well worth a visit. It is held in, surprise surprise, the Market Square above. We buy all our fresh vegetables, fruit and meat there and the prices are very reasonable. We also believe in supporting local suppliers and farmers so the market is an ideal place to do this.

We need to stock up as we have more friends visiting on Saturday. John and Carolyn have been involved with our dream of living on Epiphany from the start. Regular Epiphany blog readers will remember they took photos of her as she was built, were there when she was launched and on her maiden voyage!

Epiphany leaving Sydney Wharf, Bath on maiden voyage return journey back to Devizes Marina, on the Kennet and Avon canal. Big John at the helm, our friend John also at the stern! Carolyn and I are in the bow! We think this is one of the best photos of Epiphany and was taken by Richard Clarke of Bath Narrowboats.

We have begun a collection of Bath Narrowboats on the Cut. It can be found here
We hope gradually to add to it as either we spot them on our travels or owners let us have photos to put up. More details of some of the boats can be seen on the Bath Narrowboats web site. Follow boat building, past builds.
