Stockton Top to London & Thames
1995 A Two week, one way cruise from Stockton Top down the Grand Union Canal to London.
From Bulls Bridge in Hayes through Regents Park Zoo and Camden into Limehouse Basin in Docklands. Out on the tidal Thames under Tower Bridge and past the Houses of Parliament. Continued upstream to Brentford where we re-joined the canal. Met up with fellow owner's, the Wolfsen family, where we swapped Swallow for their car. They took over Swallow and we drove back to base in their car.
