  2. That annoys me too. Especially if I’m holding back and it’s a bit breezy. Just gerronwithit!
  3. Far Canal (a few of these about including one on the Celebrity Barging prog). And also... Sloake Hunt, seen in Birmingham and one of the most offensive things I’ve ever seen in public, never mind on a boat. What sort of moron... (apologies for language if you’re a bit sensitive)
  4. The thing I want to know is why the three men each have a pair of identical blue trainers. Who bought them, and why?
  5. One positive that may come out of this is a greater acknowledgement of the need for government spending on infrastructure, and on the things that make our society tick along (education, NHS, roads etc etc). For the last decade, we’ve been in a situation where the government has been actively engaged in shrinking the state not just because of the financial crisis but also for ideological reasons. Enough is enough, it’s time to redress the balance.
  6. Looking at forecasts and reports of the Trent around Willington and Burton, we’re changing our plans to do the Leicester Ring. We’d be in Alrewas in about three days and expect that stretch of the river to Wychnor as well as the Trent at Sawley and the Soar will be just too risky. We may be being over cautious here, but better safe than sorry.
  7. Speeding boats are a pain but so too are slow boats. With a bit of consideration, for example by pulling over if you are caught up, we can all go at the speed we choose. There’s no right or wrong way to boat, as long as others aren’t inconvenienced.
  8. Just had a walk along the Greet, which flows into the Trent near Fiskerton. Day before yesterday, there was about 6" of water in it. This morning I reckon there's at least 4'.
  9. I live not that far away, and the Bleasby pub is good. The Bromley at Fiskerton is also good although busy on a sunny day. There are visitor moorings right by the pub (if you can get on them, that is), and a small shop next door. There's also The Full Moon at Morton, the best of the lot in my opinion. The Bromley and the Moon do good food, not sure about the one in Bleasby. Sorry, I know next to nothing about the moorings though.
  10. Many thanks to all respondents. Much appreciated.
  11. We like doing 6-8 hours a day, and prefer rural moorings where we can bbq if the weather is ok. But also enjoy good food if there are decent restaurants around. So... a bit of a mix really. Will also need one supermarket on the trip, probably around Berkhamsted. Thanks.
  12. We've never been south of Milton Keynes before and wondered what the collective view was on good (and bad) moorings between there and Brentford. I've done a rough plan, which will no doubt evolve, and expect our overnight spots to be; south of Leighton Buzzard; Marsworth; Berkhamsted; Cassiobury Park; Denham; and Brentford. Anything we should reconsider about that itinerary? We like a mix of moorings - some very rural, others by pubs/restaurants. From Brentford, we intend to go up the Thames before turning off to visit Bath (and maybe Bristol). Then back to the Thames, up to Oxford and onto the Oxford Canal. Not planned any of that in detail, but if anybody has advice on do's and don'ts then that would be very welcome. Thanks in advance.
