  1. Skipton Visitor Moorings

    We moored in Skipton on the Leeds side of the services a couple of weeks ago without a hint of trouble. We've also moored in other areas of Skipton before without issues. As others have said, I think it's down to luck and problems can happen anywhere.
  2. DIY facilities north west

    Wigan dry dock; bookable online with CRT.
  3. Charges for the Bridgewater Canal

    Thorn Marine is an excellent stop for diesel and just about anything else you are likely to need. It is run by a lovely couple who have been there for years and always have a warm welcome.
  4. Music in Pubs

    I'm not a fan of canned music in pubs, but if it's live that's a different matter.
  5. Charges for the Bridgewater Canal

    Ah right, it looked like a permanently locked security gate closing them off.
  6. Charges for the Bridgewater Canal

    It used to but they were well and truly closed up when I went through. I walked around trying to find a way in with my key without success. Me neither, yet I've always used the one at Lloyd bridge no. 24 up the passage by the house.
  7. Charges for the Bridgewater Canal

    When I called at the Worsley services a couple of months ago it was all closed up.
  8. Charges for the Bridgewater Canal

    We moored in Crooke last night and had an excellent meal in the Crooke Hall Inn. The beer was good too.
  9. Saltaire moorings

    We wanted to moor overnight at Saltaire last week and ended up by the cricket ground below the lock after a couple of previous attempts to get in, and passing all those excellent visitor moorings with no overnight stays allowed.
  10. Red Diesel...At last the facts!

    The moral being that I am correct!
  11. Pub, restaurants on the Lancaster

    You may find wheelchair access from the canal to the Hand and Dagger tricky as it is fairly steep access and the moorings aren't great either.
  12. Pub, restaurants on the Lancaster

    If you get to Lancaster the Waterwitch is beside the canal as is the Canal Turn at Carnforth; both serve reasonable food and ale. The Tithe Barn in Garstang is fairly close to the visitor moorings and is ok.
  13. Red Diesel...At last the facts!

    Alternative meanings. Whilst expeditiously would have been a more appropriate word to use, expediently was not entirely incorrect. expediently adverb Expediently is defined as something done quickly or efficiently, or an answer or solution based on what is right or just.

  14. Red Diesel...At last the facts!

    Well the definition was copied straight from the dictionary so, however much you dispute it, I maintain that Mrsmelly used it, in context, correctly.
  15. Red Diesel...At last the facts!

    "Expediently is defined as something done quickly or efficiently, or an answer or solution based on what is right or just. If you are checked in for your flight and whisked through security in a total of five minutes flat, this is an example of when you move expediently." So yes, really!
