President and Kildare

President and Kildare
The President's touch

During a visit to the Black Country Museum in Tipton on Saturday 16th May, we happened upon narrowboats President and Kildare being readied for a run out. Wand'ring Bark was tucked in against the wall of the museum, and President therefore use her stern as a hinge to rotate the 130 degrees needed to vacate her mooring, followed by the ever dutiful Kildare.
The following photo sequence captures their departure and progression down the Old Main Line to wind at the top of Brades Locks.
