  1. Imaginary Boat Trip - Play along please!

    Could we not just attach a few thousand helium balloons to lift her then see how effective the prop is when it comes to air rather than water?
  2. Chesterfield canal - mooring

    I echo Cheshire Rose's points and just add i've never heard of any security issues etc. there.

  4. Mooring in Worksop

    If you decide to Moor in Retford the Idle Valley Brewery Tap is about 100 yards from Town Lock. It's also worth a visit to Beer Hedz which is just off the market place.
  5. Mooring in Worksop

    Personally i'd probably avoid mooring in Worksop especially overnight. As noddy mentioned the Lock Keeper is probably your best bet mooring wise. It's about a 20 minute walk into the town centre from there. The other alternative is some mooring ringsabout 200 yards above Deep Lock which will probably only add 5 minutes to your walk into town if that.
  6. There is power at the Boat Club @ Clayworth on the Chesterfield and they allow visitors for mooring. Equally in Retford the Hop Pole pub allow mooring (I beleive you need to book a table as well) and they have power. Give me a shout when you are passing through!
