  1. If you look at the flicker link below for 2012 I think your boat is right at the end. Lillian 514961 built by Johnathan Wilson.
  2. Don"t know if it"s related but there is a lot going on in the fields by bridge 81. They are excavating the new marina and some of the workers are living on site in caravans.I was approached by a nice couple a few weeks ago who had been told by their boss that there was a pub close by on the towpath????
  3. Kinver was just passing through wasn*t sure how old it is
  4. Photos from Saturdays parade on flicker link below. Sickle doing its best to cause chaos. Sorry for the ones I missed but camera & small grandson malfunctioned when lightening was overhead & brolly sprang a leak. Big thanks to everyone taking part. Good to see some different boats
  5. Didn't read O P until today so got caught out by the closure yesterday. Walked up to the Plough instead and it will be our first choice in future.Very warm welcome, good home cooked food, good beer, good value for money. What more do you want?
  6. This boat was converted to paddle propulsion by my step father in law. He lived at Pewsey before the K&A was restored and the pound suffered badly from weed growth because there was so little boat movement. The paddie overcame the problem of weed clogging the prop
  7. This is going to sound like the daftest question ever. What are you burning on your stove? We have had the wasp problem in our house and found the answer is the queens are going into my log shed to hibernate.I bring them in on the logs and warm them up by the stove and they fly round the room . Simples
  8. Now I feel truly amongst friends.I might become a posting junkie
  9. Young man I think you greatly underestimate yourself & you have managed to inspire me to post after only 7 years on the forum. I greatly admire boaters that single hand and try hard to do their bit when sharing locks. I think you worked all of the gates and paddles on your side. you didn't hit us or any other boat or any of the canal structure that alone must put you in the top 5% of boaters we have met over the years. I didn't realise you were scared of the tunnel but you came out the other end, maybe next time you will meet a boat coming the other way to add to your enjoyment. While I'm here in case I don't post for another 7 years thank you to everyone who made us so very welcome and a huge thank you to all members who post technical information, there is nothing I have needed that I haven't found yet.Looking forward to meeting some of you again soon and will certainly be looking to attend next year.
