Paddington to Kings Cross

On Sunday we were in London and decided to walk along the Regent's Canal from Paddington to Kings Cross. It was a lovely sunny day and it was fun to walk along the stretch we have cruised along twice now in the Duck. At Paddington we emerged from the tube station and were greeted by the sight of a Northwich butty. It was unnamed but a little bit of looking up on Jim Shead's website showed that it was in fact the Middle Northwich, Taurus (not to be confused with the hotel boat Taurus (oringinally called Crater), now paired with Snipe). There's a few old photos of it on here.

When we got to Kings Cross, we found that the new concourse was open, a day early. It is really very impressive! (See Diamond Geezer's excellent blog for more pictures and thoughts on it.)We stopped for some dinner there before heading home.

  1. Taurus is normally paired up with Baron on the London Coal/Gas/Diesel/Pump out run


    1. Ah that makes more sense, I did wonder why a butty would be moored randomly in Paddington with no sign of a motor about!
