Totally new to boating and looking for a permanent (non residential) mooring on the Bridgewater Canal (preferably close to Manchester) but can't find any information. Have been unable to get a response from firstname.lastname@example.org and wondered what everyone else's experience was? Is it usual to have trouble gaining info about this sort of thing? Have seen email@example.com suggested many times, but he has now retired. Finding it very frustrating.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice, it would be very gratefully received!
I'm looking at buying a 12ft widebeam hopefully next year. what i'm struggling to find is a map that shows the parts of the network that will take a 12ft boat I've been referring to this map http://newandusedboat.co.uk/canal-network-map.php
But if I'm reading the Collins Nicholson guide right then what is stated as broad on the map still has 10ft wide locks. Is there a canal network map that shows what parts a 12ft wide beam will fit on.
Also while I've been looking for possible marinas a map showing the marinas actual on the canals network map would also seem useful otherwise i find you have to keep trying to switch between canal map and google maps and try and match the two up then go to collins guide to check lock widths or other restrictions.
Any help appreciated

From the same blog as the Ashby canal photos - these are of the Chesterfield at Misterton taken in 1962. There are references to earlier photos - methinks I need to join the forum so I can search for them!!
More photos from same blog here
I like the one of West Stockwith basin frozen over.
I've browsed for a while as a guest and have finally bought my first boat. A small Viking narrow beam.
Its on the aire & calder at the moment.
How is the LL for small narrow cruisers? Do many GRP boats use it? What is progress like on the LL with traffic etc? I've checked with canalplan for timings etc but wondered how much the time of year etc had an effect.
Lots of questions...
