It's difficult to know where to move North Star. Although there is a lot of interest around Nottingham, the rivers in the area need a bit more experience and careful planning, so we want to move her onto the canal network proper.

It's tempting to bring her down to the London area: the big voyage - Nottingham to Stortford is really appealling but then what? Hmmmmm.
