Welcome to Living in a Ditch

A brand new website sharing stories and experiences from real people who live or play aboard their boats on the waterways of Great Britain.

A BIG thank you to those who have contributed so far – this site is nothing without you!

The intention of this site is to give a platform to people who live or play on their narrow boats to post their own articles away from all the noise of social media and the abuse that can sometimes bring. This is a place for people to tell their stories, share their experiences, share tips and tricks, recipes, herbal remedies, foraging, personal feelings and anything else they desire other than political rubbish.

Eventually we hope this will become a website built by the people for the people.


We got to thinking, why stop at written articles? Why not video too? With that in mind we are pleased to announce that we are now also featuring vloggers from around the waterways on this site. Just check out the VIDEO CHANNELS page to find out more and get involved!

Follow us on social media for all the latest news and updates.
