  1. Best washing machine solution

    Tow the clothes behind you, a full days cruising should be enough to shift most stubborn stains!
  2. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    Post 63 shows them, apparently at hartshill, i am putting my money on the photo being took from bridge 32.
  3. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    mid 1800s maybe then?
  4. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    The only telegraph pole left...
  5. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    Thinking about dating this, i am sure that telegraph poles used to run all the way up that stretch, i have seen old photos of telegraph poles running through Nuneaton and hartshill, plus there is one left standing near tuttle hill moorings, this photo has none so i must have been early 1800s ?
  6. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    Have been trying to find out how old the yard is, but all i can find is mention of a fire and documents being lost. I know the canal used to run under the house that is now built into the bridge, next to the water point, i think they used to load boats from above, the chap that lives there will show you the basement if you get chatting to him.
  7. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    Yup, like i said in post 3.
  8. Lift out fee

    You visited there before you had the lift out, and comment on them looking like cowboys and you would look elsewhere. The old saying of trust your gut instinct springs to mind.
  9. Parking at Nuneaton?

    moor at the visitor moorings, just past boot wharf if heading towards Coventry, then walk down the road and through riversley park, enterprise is on the edge of the Park, its about 20 mins max. you can park in any of the side streets close to boot wharf, plus you can go into the three horseshoes and sample the lovely ales! https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Enterprise+Rent-A-Car,+107-115+Attleborough+Rd,+Nuneaton+CV11+4JQ/@52.5169156,-1.4643584,15z/data=!4m6!1m3!3m2!1s0x48774e1ec6a4c517:0xb32f7947ebefa587!2sNuneaton+Vehicle+Rental+Ltd,+15+Seymour+Rd,+Nuneaton+CV11+4JD!3m1!1s0x487751fcd357f289:0x26605263ba656af8
  10. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    if they did, then they built it from extremely good steel!
  11. Anyone watch the wasps at Ricoh.

    yup, and I have never seen a boat moored there!
  12. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    yeah I found that yesterday, its a good walk from the canal though, in fact I remember walking over there with my dad about 20 years ago...
  13. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    i was thinking of popping over on the weekend, if you go down apple pie lane, there are boats moored on the offside, you will see on google maps, might be worth taking the photo and asking if you can have a look from the bank, i would suggest back towards the house, away from the bridge with a house on.
  14. i think everyone has the right to build, create any structure they desire, be it a house or boat, so the snobbery of how it looks is a little out of order. The claims they are making about being fully self sufficient annoy me.
