BCN - arm to Bradley Workshops

5 posts in this topic

Morning all,

I ventured up the arm to Bradley workshops a few weeks back and only got as far as the halfway winding hole.  There was a large log across the narrows just beyond, which seemed to have steel rope attaching it underwater - it then started to rain heavily, so I didn't investigate further.  Progress was slow and the weed was thick put passable fairly easily. 

Just wondered from the BCN experts, what is the situation regarding going to the workshops at the end and turning - presumably this is still possible?

Thanks

Haven't been up there for a couple of years but as far as I know it is still passable and you can turn at the workshops.

We were there on foot a couple of weeks ago and you can wind in the CRT basin 24/7

Was that you we briefly spoke to on Good Friday?

Wish I has tried harder now...  oh well, will go back next year.

It is a bit slow going but you should get to the end ok, and turning should not be an issue, I don't believe they put the chain across at all now so you can turn in the canal opposite the workshops

      Hi all,
      We have recently bought a beautiful but neglected narrowboat called Jasmine and we would love to find some history.
      In some old surveys from the 90s it says that she was built in 1964 by Graham Parker at Norton Canes Docks as a direct copy of a BCN tug with the same name, after hours of searching we can not find a BCN tug named Jasmine or any information about our boat, until I found a post on here that suggests she may have been built in 1961 by John Humphries who was a Director of Lew-Way in Brownhills.
      Here is a link to the post that i found
      In the 2nd video on this post you can see what looks like our boat,
       
      Here are some pictures of Jasmine as she is today ready to be renovated, we have some old negatives of the original sign writing that i will upload soon.
      If anyone has any information or old pictures we would be very grateful.
