  1. Brexit 2017

    A fun quiz for all the family http://visual.ons.gov.uk/whats-changed-in-the-year-since-the-brexit-vote/ Anth
  2. Stanley Ferry Marina?

    Just had a look on Google Maps Street View. The Griffin is up for sale and the Old Mill seems to be a care home! Don't know what dates the pictures are! Anth That sounds interesting, do you have any idea of the name. I might have a look for it next time I'm at Stanley Ferry. Thanks Anth
  3. Stanley Ferry Marina?

    There did used to be one at Castleford, just down from Fairies Hill. I think it was called The Griffin If it is still there, it was behind the Marine Engineers just down from the flood lock. I'm in the Isle of Lewis at the moment so I'm some distance from my log books! :-) Anth
  4. Stanley Ferry Marina?

    We used to moor at Fairies Hill and found it a very friendly community. Stanley Ferry always looked very full when we visited. Plastic Pub is very handy though. Anth
  5. The Building Centre is hosting a discussion on the future of design regarding canals. It may be interesting to anyone who is close enough to attend. https://www.buildingcentre.co.uk/events/canals-night-and-day?utm_campaign=Concrete_Sep2017&utm_content=unspecified&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Event Anth
  6. A Wee one to start again.

    I think he has a cunning plan Anth
  7. Izuzu Engine - strange behaviour

    I had almost exactly the same symptoms on our boat. It turned out to be swarf left in the tank when it was built being sucked into the fuel line. When the engine was stopped the flow through the fuel lines stopped and the engine would run fine again on start up, untill the next bit of swarf was sucked up. Anth
  8. A memorable trip for all the wrong reasons

    My condolences at this terrible time. I've never met either of you but I'll be sure to raise a glass on the 8th Anth

    As far as I know, you shouldn't fly any national flag above the Union flag in this country. It's a mark of disrespect in any country http://www.flagpolecompany.co.uk/flag etiquette.html Anth
  13. Stanley Ferry - BW Facilites

    It's just behind the first blue boat on the other side of the sanitary block. just opposite where the footpath goes off into the trees (there is a white info board opposite the pump out box) Anth
  14. Stanley Ferry - BW Facilites

    I believe that the self pump out is in a separate box on the edge of the canal on the other side of the facilities block from the swing bridge. Anth

    Sorry, I should have stated that it's from the Office of National Statistics. Anth .
