Convoy !!! With over 5 thousand acres of parkland in Milton Keynes they don't mess around when it comes to grass cutting. With each machine being registered for the road they work as a team and race around all over the place.
One of the most common trees along the canal system is the Willow, and it is also one of the first trees to come into leaf. Willow loves damp and moist soil which unfortunately makes it not very good for burning with its very high moisture content. We have burnt willow that was a couple of years old ,but it still doesn't burn as well as other types of wood.
We are now moored at Giffard park and will stay here for the next couple of days. With a shop ,Chinese takeaway ,Fish and chips and a Pub and not forgetting a Play park for Curly all with in 100 yards I'm sure we will survive here ok.
