  1. Twin pack or Bitumen

    We've recently had a boat out at Langley Mill Boatyard which is 30 years old. Covered in 2 pack and regularly cruises. No pitting and very minimal rust patches after being in the water for 10 years since the last docking...... It's made me think about whether I switch over at some point..... Dan
  2. Two boats - How do you use them?

    One for us One for the kids
  3. Narrowboat Graveyard

    The regents canal......
  4. Filance Lock on Staffs and Worcester has Shrunk

    We were one of the first to stick with Meteor back in April...ish. it was reported then, as were numerous other close encounters I believe. It took alot of effort to free her out. Most boats will be fine but for the odd few the bulge is just in the wrong place. Kind regards Dan
  5. Former Anderton Company motor "Norway"

    Thanks James. I'll see if I can find a copy. Dan
  6. Good afternoon all! We recently had the opportunity to purchase the ironwork to the former Anderton Company Motor "Norway", which was tied at Stone for years. We found her listed in the Anderton Company notebook which gives us vital measurements but I was wondering if anyone has any historical photos of her, either working, or moored at Stone? CRT archives throw up a blank. Kind Regards Dan
  7. Boat turning jig ?

    Bradley's was decommissioned years ago.
  8. Lymm Historic Transport Day - This Sunday

    What a truly lovely event this was. Well organised and a fantastic atmosphere throughout the whole village. The boats which turned out looked splendid and so nice to see the crowds supporting and cheering the boats on the parade. A great mix of different craft too. Much better than other events on the same weekend in my opinion. Kind regards Dan

  11. Narrow Dog

    The original Phylis May has been rebuilt as a tug style boat by Industry Narrow boats at Stretton. She is unrecognisable now and a beautiful boat with excellent lines. Kind regards Dan

    Thanks Athy, Pete did indeed used to run it. We are still a rather calm oasis however the area is subject to a lot of regeneration at the moment, with new properties and businesses springing up almost daily! We also aim to keep the yard as it always has been, a traditional working boatyard, as we feel that is what it is best at! Kind regards Dan

    Blimey, it's been 7 months since we took over the yard! We've slowly been making improvements, mainly around the dry dock area, with new safety features installed, and new LED lighting. Further improvements will be rolled out imminently. We have also been getting 5 star reviews on our Facebook page, "The Dry dock has been vastly improved with safety rails and safe access bridges for boarding the boat" "The dock was very clean and tidy" "A great welcome, lots of help and advice with a real family atmosphere" "If its a long time since you have visited Langley Mill Boat yard then don't leave it to long before you visit again. I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised. The facilities are updating daily and the customer service is excellent" "The directors are very approachable and helpful in every way. It's just what this lovely little boat yard has been in need of for many years" We still have a few gaps in the dry dock calendar, with DIY prices starting at £35 per day, and bitumen blacking from £7.50 per ft. We aim to be competitively priced without skimping on quality. Don't hesitate to contact the office on 01773 760758 if you are looking for dock space. Don't take our word for it though, with the IWA festival at Ilkeston in August and the ECPDA rally at Langley Mill next year, the Erewash canal is now more popular than ever and we look forward to welcoming you "at the top"! We also do coal, Gas, pump outs and diesel, and can also source basic chandlery items if you find yourself "caught short".

    I was going to say Tim Carter but wasn't sure how busy he was!

    I think you're probably better going to smaller builders who may have the capacity and who have the skill to build "off plan". many larger ones just churn out from templates so would be reluctant to alter their model per se. Maybe also try Brinklow Boat Services or Paul Barbers at Sheet Stores. Kind regards Dan
