About

This is the Canalplan blog for “Mintball”.

Mintball is a 52 foot narrowboat and was built by Ron Tinker of Middleton, Manchester, in 1986. Since then she’s done a lot of trips and has covered most of the UK canal system. She’s been to the head of navigation on the Great Ouse at Kempston Mill , the head of navigation of the Thames at Inglesham, the head of the Warwickshire Avon navigation at The Red House and plenty of “dead ends” in Birmingham.

Nick or Steve are usually on the boat when it is out and about – so if you fancy catching up with them and buying Nick some beer for all the work he has done on CanalPlan AC then you just need to stop us when we’re passing.
