So, as you laze around drinking cocktails and getting sunburnt in August (we can dream…) be sure to pick up the August issue of Towpath Talk to read. My article Life in the Controlled Zone is on page 100, and looks at what life is like on the London canals during the Olympics.
Did the Canal and River Trust evict all the continuous cruisers before the zone began? Are all the boaters taps working? Will it affect boating businesses? Is an Olympic Mooring reasonably priced? Visit Towpath Talk website to read a pdf copy.
