  2. Bell boats were designed by David Train (Fladbury canoe and kayak club) dad of Olympic canoeists Steve and Andy to get as many people on the water as possible

  8. Mix baking soda and salt with hot water and cover everything with it. The proportions are not crucial, but about 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of baking soda to 3 dl water should do the trick. Lightly tarnished objects should clean up in a few minutes, and you just rinse them of and dry them. works a treat
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-vMDnpia3Y This one shows the high street flooded and more water in the Salwarpe
  10. Found this. the speeding cyclist look more rouble than the boats
  11. A few years back you used to have to pay BW for a cycle permit to use the towpath and display it The problem is who is going to stop people to ask for their permit and is the cost of doing so worth it, when it was only £5 for the yearly permit
  12. The same way the two four legged creatures used to pass The rope they used was quite a long one, and it was made of cotton, which happens to be denser than water. When two boats met, the one crew allowed their rope to go slack, causing it to sink to the bottom of the canal. The second horse stepped over the slack rope, the second boat floated over it, and then both boats continued on their way. Simples!
  13. No it was a seal https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hereford-worcester-22808337
  14. Think that area along the weir wall is very shallow and is a salmon fishing area Step and landing below lock
  15. H&W looks poised to shut down for good. No more narrowboats!!!
