  1. Sorry for taking so long to reply but got held up before hols. Left lap top for piece of mind, but thanks for your comments We doddled to Stourport and returned via the Droitwich loved it apart from the drenching we got on the 14th going up the Severn. Had a great meal in the Eagle and Sun and at the other end of the scale Witherspoons in Stourport. One serious comment DO NOT MOOR opposite Smiths papers yard just above lock 3 the yard works all night with the small lift trucks reversing continuously. Once again thanks to all this is one great web site love reading all the comments
  2. Yes we ate there 3 years ago when we did the Avon ring from Tardibigge, Had a v/good meal after completing the flight. Will maybe revisit at the end of the trip and ta for the tip

  4. The GU south of Braunston

    We will be on the GU in early May for our hols and will be travelling north from Linslade, so I am also interested in all comments. This is the first time we will have covered this area. Our intention is to cruise up to Market Harborough and return over the two weeks all additional info greatly appreciated. I should say we have simple tastes in food no spicey stuff these days. Would like to know of any recommended canalside pubs with music. Hope you enjoy your hol neil

    Hi can anyone advise? I’m climbing over the wall yet again In May and heading for the GU (for my Hols) is there another wall at the south end of the Northern Counties that I’ll have to go over. I’m also thinking of visiting friends in the SW will there be another wall there, or am I going to have to swim the Servern to passport control. Also can you tell me if Yorkies and pasties will be accepted as currency or will Haggi or TRIPE be accepted as part exchange.
  6. Hi Again,

    We are now on our holiday and are having a great time thanks to you and the other forum folk who were kind enough to give me their advice, So far we are about 2/3rds of the way around the Avon Ring and have reached Wooten Wawen had a great night in the Navigation Inn. Found the locks on the Avon a bit of a bind but did cope in the end. Had to put heating on thought this was summer.

  7. or find others to moor near. Quite alot of debris in places around brum so you might need to clean off the prop every now and again.

    Think thats about all I can think of for now. Any other questions just ask.

  8. Hi, Uptons nice to stop if all you want is lunch and Worcesters good to if you want a bit more to do.

    How close to Birmingham are you getting? If your going into the center be warned it gets really noisey at night round by all the bars. I'm sure there are quite places to moor but we haven't found it yet. On the outskirts/ its a bit sketchy to moor. I'd wait until your out in t...

  9. Hi Chickadee thanks for your comments


  10. Hi again, My apologies for not replying to your last message on the Avon ring. i appreciate your comments and would ask where you would recommend stopping for a bite to eat on the Severn. Any hints on going through Birmingham I would also be greatful for. We are off at the end of the week so were hoping for a pleasant cruise.

  11. Viking / UK Boat Hire Performance / Cost

    Point taken. I'll hope for better this time round. We are now at the "What have you not got packed stage" and "does it need washed". Ah well soon be on our way.
  12. Viking / UK Boat Hire Performance / Cost

    Perhaps your correct but i still think it is wise to check the inventry before you leave the boatyard.
  13. Viking / UK Boat Hire Performance / Cost

    We also hired from Anglo Welsh last year and were very happy with the boat we had (Golden Eagle). The problem we had was with the itinary that should have been on the boat, a number of items were missing and one or two things needed replacing and cleaning. If we had checked the boat over properly at the start we probably would have had these items replaced we didnt because we had become to complacent having hired now for many years and had on the whole good service from many companies. We blame the paticular boatyard and ourselves for allowing that to happen and not Anglo Welsh. So we are again hiring a boat from the same company this year only from another yard.
