Hi, This is a very random question but does anyone know whether Hampstead is still about? It's shown on the boat listings with a newer style 6 digit BW no but last updated 2010. Thanks for reading :-)

She indeed still around and still owned by the Balls at Industry Narrowboats (34 years they have had her). She is actually coming out for a survey on Tuesday as she has a potential new owner lined up

Was it the Lycetts that you knew? I know they had her for a while. I believe Keith Ball bought her in 1985 when she was on dry land somewhere near audlem
