Horningsea, Cambridgeshire Cambridgeshire UK|
I'm selling my lovely narrowboat, Wildflower as I'm expecting to have to relocate at short notice to a canal-free area of the country later on in the year!If interested, feel free to get in touch!
I'm currently moored very near to Cambridge (at Horningsea) and there is a possibility of selling the boat on its current mooring (subject to the landlady's approval of the new buyer!).
Open to sensible offers :)
