  1. Now I swear that didn't work yesterday... Maybe because I was trying to do it in a post I was editing? Thanks šŸ˜€
  2. Just using this thread to test a BBCode link to a Flickr picture. [url=https://flic.kr/p/28FcvSk][img]https://live.staticflickr.com/1828/43106779971_c1ff32e577_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url=https://flic.kr/p/28FcvSk]Braunston Historic Boat Festival 2018[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/imulford/]Ian[/url], on Flickr If it doesn't work, is their any update on when it could be brought back as I want to link to a lot of pictures already on Flickr and I don't want to have to resize them and upload them individually if the linking doesn't work. Edited to add: Obviously it doesn't work still.šŸ˜ 
  3. I wasn't aware that he'd used that picture on that thread. Whilst it's freely available for anyone to look at on Flickr, he should have linked to the Flickr image and not downloaded it himself. Edited to add: The naughty boy has even cropped my watermark off!
  4. Who is Peter Scott? I certainly haven't given him permission to use my picture anywhere!
  5. Gough's Orchard Lock, Thames & Severn Canal Daneway Portal, Sapperton Tunnel, Thames & Severn Canal Inglesham Lock and Junction with River Thames, Thames & Severn Canal
  6. I actually had Eysey Lock in my head, should have stuck with it!
  7. I would say from first impressions that all three pictures are from different canals, the most obvious point being the middle picture is a narrow canal and the other two broad. The third picture has an air of Thames and Severn about it but I can't quite place where it might be.
  8. Yes, I got that afterwards. Just been to the dentist so not really thinking straight!
  9. Just seen pictures on Facebook/Instagram of the lock and one of the gates is well and truly propped shut so only narrow craft can use the lock.
  10. Links to the photos work for me. As I said before in this thread, Iā€™m looking forward to seeing the progress.
  11. I don't think he does want to remove it. I got the impression from his post that it was his reasoning for it being in there since the boat was built as there would be no way of getting it in without the boat being built around it.
  12. Black Bridge is above Westgate Bridge (the bridge mentioned as being the one which could be altered and why Black Bridge was built as a swing bridge) and therefore north of Gloucester Lock so the bend in question would be part of the Severn still used at that time by the grain barges and tankers up to Tewkesbury and Worcester.
  13. Article here, including pictures of the damage http://www.news.cn/english/2021-10/04/c_1310226464.htm
