  1. It comes down to the beer. The OJS is a Fullers house. It might be a bit more interesting now that Fullers, or their new Japanese (?) owners, have bought Dark Star. But it can't compete with the range of beers sold across the back at the Wellington.
  2. And all the boats in all those marinas around there too?

  6. I'm off to to boat next week. I phoned a local boatyard to check they would be open for diesel. They are also a hire base. They said "Best not call in on Monday, we've 10 boats going out". I suppose it means I might get some help through the locks.
  7. And looking all the better for the lack of, ahem, urban artwork on the walls.
  8. And they spelt the past tense of plough with a 'w'! (And yes I have looked up the difference betwee spelt and spelled)
  9. Thanks for those replies. I've been looking on old OS maps, Streetview etc. and reckoned that photo was taken looking towards the pit from the lift bridge with the new marina being where those buildings (pit offices?) are to the right. We came through there back in 2013. That whole area had been flattened. The marina was in water but empty of boats. The next time we passed through new housing had started to mushroom up. It was difficult to believe the pit had ever existed. Comparing what is there now with the 1977, I think I prefer the latter.
  10. Any offers as to where the canal is/was in relation to this pic?
  11. I don't like to ask but have you fully researched cc'ing in or close-ish to London? There are an awful lot of other people doing it, you know.

  14. But free about 400yds upriver, or at least it was last time we were there. I hope it still is.
