I have done it loads of times without any trouble but I live round here and you do get kids swimming in the locks but they are building a very big development kirkstall forge right near the 2 locks so this area should improve quite a lot.

That would be before the introduction of the new T&Cs.

Not new T&C :(

I think I have seen the thread on here about them.

I'll go have a look.

ta Leeco - would certainly do that - prob only spend 6-8 weeks at a time away from home mooring, and probably more time at home mooring than away over the whole year.

I never get bothered and I'm hardly at my mooring.

I did a few years ago but I was just at one place all year and never went to my mooring but a guy from CRT told me to return to my mooring at least 4 times in a year and then do what you like.

I have a home mooring, but at certain times of year, the commute to work can be up to an hour for a 10 mile journey. One thing I could do is shuttle between Beeston and the visitor moorings in the middle of Nottingham, and walk / cycle to work.
If I were to do this - spend 14 days at each place, and shuttle back and forth, am I likely to get "done" by CRT? Or does the fact I have a home mooring mean I can go wherever I want, stay within the relevant time limits, and be OK?
Would probably only shuttle for Oct-Dec and Feb-Apr, as the rest of the year the traffic isn't as bad as the University students aren't about.
Of course, it would be better if my home mooring was closer to work, but I've waited nearly 3 years for 70ft mooring to come up at Beeston, and it hasn't yet!
Previously I'd thought I'd be restrained by the same rules as CC'ers, but reading a few threads recently about this, it seems those with a home mooring might not have the same requirement to be "on a journey" and be allowed to bridge-hop?

I was told as long as you go back to your mooring every now and again then it's fine.
