I'm well pleased with Herbie's new bow fender which we picked up on Friday from Mick Betts at Cosgrove. At sixty five quid I reckon we got a bargain. As you can see it's very neatly made and it has a proper rope centre unlike some others.
Cosgrove is a very attractive rural area on the GU although quite close to Milton Keynes. Boaters remember it for three things - the junction with the now defunct Buckingham arm, the high aqueduct over the fledgling river Ouse, and this unusually ornate canal bridge.
