About Me

I have loved canals ever since I went on a boat trip on the Regent’s Canal when I was 11 years old. I rented a hire boat with my best friends on the Oxford Canal when I was 18, followed by a memorable student holiday on the Canal du Midi. It was the beginning of a long love affair, during which I have owned three narrowboats. I am now a Canal and River Trust volunteer, and I help to run the CRT visitor boat ‘The Admiral’, moored next to the cafe at Caen Hill Locks in Devizes. We recently purchased a static caravan near Brewood on the Shropshire Union Canal, which is now my Midlands ‘home from home’. As a canal aficionado, I am uniquely placed to assist buyers and sellers of canalside homes. I started a canalside property website in 2018, and launched my estate agency in 2021.

I was an estate agent back in the 1980s, and although I later worked in publishing and archives, I never lost my passion for property. My husband Mike and I have lived in Royal Wootton Bassett since 2008, when we moved into Touchdown House on the High Street with our combined family of ten children. What an adventure that was! Since then, all but one of our children has grown up and left home. We now live in Green Park, not far from the Academy and Jubilee Lake. I love local history and I have written several books about Wootton Bassett one hundred years ago – you can find them in Moonraker Books on the High Street. I look forward to learning more about the history of Brewood.
