Canals of Digbeth are much older than London’s canals


A long journey from Lea Navigation to Hetherford Union Canal

Today’s passenger is familiar with the canals from the perspective of his family’s narrow boat – but he enjoys being so much closer to the water, and travelling without the noise of engines…

This time, we got a tug from a friendly narrowboat captain!

My passenger from West London is enjoying the beauty and tranquillity of the Hertford Union Canal during his first visit here.

Kayak Libre Water Taxi is parked in a studio overlooking Regents Canal near Broadway Market. This is one point of entry for taxi rides to Hackney Wick and Fish Island.
