As a newish boater, can anyone give me the price of diesel at the moment around the Shardlow area?

Does it vary a lot in different areas?

Many thanks

Can't answer first question, but, in our experience, diesel costs can vary enormously in the same area!

Definitely worth shopping around.

Fuel boats are often, (but not always), at the lowest end on costs, but often hard to find. Again I don't know about Shardlow, and if any fuel boats regularly trade there.

Unless you want to declare 60% propulsion, 40% other, make sure before you start to fill up anywhere that they are prepared to accept your intended declared split. Not all are.

We are boating now with just "Sickle".,
We had a great time at Audlem for the Festival of Transport at the weekend, (Sat 26th to Sun 27th July).

Thursday we are moored near Huddlesford.

 

Yesterday I had my first waist deep immersion since I started boating well over 40 years ago,

(I'm fine, but the camera I had on my belt isn't going to recover, I think!).

Planned next event.......

JD Boat services (Dobsons Yard) are usually OK, but don't know current price. Kegworth Marine are also OK but only take cash. Have never used Shardlow Marina - thats the one on the Trent. Sawley Bridge Marina may be expensive. Prices do fluctuate in the area. A bit further afield Sileby Mill are always reasonable.

Currently 68p per litre at JD Narrowboats (Dobsons Yard), They will let you declare your % split even if it is 100% !

Yes, It's Stokey. Haven't seen the boat for a while. Last time I saw Neil (new owner) he was in a 4x4 pickup delivering coal.
