  1. Bridgewater Canal closure 20.11.17 - 29.11.17

    Reminder that this stoppage starts next week.
  2. Can't cruise as they've closed a lock!

    You have not said what you were going to do so just in case you have gone on the Bridgewater Canal have a look at the CWF stoppage page for information about a stoppage next week at Castlefield basin.

  4. Private Vs Broker

    Pick up a free copy of Towpath Talk at your nearest chandeliers.
  5. Brittany Cruising

    Have a look at the billybubbles website. Bill Davies spent a few years boating in France and you may pick up some tips.
  6. Can't cruise as they've closed a lock!

    To avoid this in future you should go onto the CaRT website and sign up to receive stoppage information for the canals of your choice.
  7. Where and why

    Just outside the area that you mentioned but you can sail from Middlewich to Manchester and also to Runcorn or Poolstock near Wigan and there is only a stop lock of a few inches at Preston Brook to pass through.
  8. Hit and run

    Anyone else been reading about a hit and run on the nbfreespirit blog. Photos show a cruiser damaging a narrowboat in the Rugby area and then not stopping to check on the damage.
  9. Counterfeit stamp

    BBC Fake Britain - episode 4 with Dom Littlewood was the programme.
  10. Counterfeit stamp

    I recollect a warning about fake stamps on a tv programme recently at it seems to be a major problem. Only buy your stamps from a Post Office.
  11. Bridgewater permits and licenses

    It could have been gigoguy
  12. Bridgewater permits and licenses

    There seems to be a lot of trees on the Bridgewater
  13. Fuel on Shropshire Union

    Dor You are correct but I cannot see anyone declaring 90 per cent propulsion
  14. Yank - Llangollen Canal Questions

    Have a look at the canalplan website, this will give you lots of information. As far as I can remember Trevor to Llangollen basin will take you approximately 3 hours and Chirk marina to Llangollen basin is approximately 4 hours.
  15. Cormorants

    On the Bridgewater near Agden but it flew off when it saw Sonny.
