  1. Turtles/ Terripins

    Snapped near Parbold on the L+L.
  2. Spiders

  3. Spiders

    I've no problems with spiders, except for the persistent little devils who spin their webs on my security cameras!
  4. VHF radio

    It transmits and receives on marine channel 0 (156.000 Mhz). I guess the Coastguard would frown on that?
  5. High & Dry !

    Probably attempting the Ribble Link. Looking at the hills in the background, I guess it's somewhere hear the mouth of the River Douglas where it joins the River Ribble.
  6. High & Dry !

    Towing a water skiier perhaps ???
  7. L+L Rufford Branch Stoppage.

    Work in progress on lock #1. How about a caption competition for photo #4?
  8. Ribble Link/ Liverpool - April 2017

    Can't see the Rufford Branch re-opening on 17th March. They started building a dam above lock #1 this morning.
  9. Ribble Link/ Liverpool - April 2017

    L+L Rufford Branch closed 16th January to 17th March 2017 for culvert repairs. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notice/7679/rufford-branch-marsh-moss
  10. Welcome to Lancashire

    Leaving Greater Manchester.
  11. Welcome to Lancashire

    I think that one is Jackson's Bridge (19).
  12. Welcome to Lancashire

    That one is due to Wigan being in Greater Manchester.
  13. Idiots at Wigan

    They're replacing one of those dreadful "back-breaker" ground paddles. Note the total lack of any safety equipment. The HSE guys would throw a wobbler nowadays! The factory chimneys are long-gone. I guess Fred Dibnah had something to do with that as he didn't live very far away?
  14. Idiots at Wigan

    The thread title had me rummaging through boxes and boxes of 35mm slides! These were taken in 1969 at lock 78 (Rose Bridge) on the Wigan flight.
