280 mile trip will take us through 186 locks
To raise funds for the memorial, we will kayak from Liverpool to London using the canal network and the river Thames.
This 280 mile trip will take us through 186 locks with an estimated duration of 149 hours (which works out as just over 12 days at 12 hours per day).
We will be posting updates of our training and of our journey on our blog and social media.
Where will the memorial be?
The proposed site is the National Memorial Arboretum. The Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre for remembrance at Alrewas, near Lichfield, Staffordshire. We have not yet commenced the memorial application process.
