The Nene Queen

Share their adventures as they relive a bygone era.

Teenagers Justin and Chloe are spending their summer vacation with their grandparents at Wattling Lock. Getting involved with the yard work and taking care of the animals was a whole new experience for them. While exploring the wrecks in the river backwater, Chloe discovers a derelict tugboat called The Nene Queen. She persuaded her father and grandpa to salvage the boat, and the whole family get involved in the renovation project. The slow idyllic outings on the river take you back to a forgotten era of the English countryside. I can personally relate with the characters and events in this story as its characteristic of the rural area I grew up in.
