  1. I was told today by a bloke who moors at North Kilworth that the thief was actually the previous owner who had kept a key.

  3. Yes, it's doable with some long days. We've done it, with stops approx as below. Other folk will no doubt offer different options and opinions. Tuesday - can you pay a bit more and get the boat early? A tought start. I reckon it's about 8 hours from Napton to the Cape pub in Warwick. 7 hours to Radford bottom lock. Wednesday - 8 hours from the Cape to Lapworth (longer if you don't make it as far as the Cape). Gastropub in Lapworth. Thursday - 7 hours to Gas St basin in central Birmingham. Start early so you get a mooring. Friday - 9 hours to Bodymoor Heath. Saturday - 7 hours to Atherstone. Sunday - 9 hours to Hawkesbury (pub). Monday - 6 hours to Braunston, 7 to rural mooring between there and Napton. Tuesday - 1 or 2 hours back to Napton. Good luck. It's a great trip.

  7. I’m just relieved that the wine was OK.
  8. We passed each other in the pound above last week. In fact my wife helped you through the bottom lock. I would have said hello, but didn’t realise it was you until later.
  9. Absolutely not. I do find some graffiti clever and pleasing. This is neither of those things.
  10. Can’t recall what it said. Just some crudely drawn letters on what is a beautiful bridge as you approach the bottom lock. The lockies do a good job at keeping the flight looking neat and attractive. The graffiti must have really angered and upset them.
  11. The bridge at the bottom of the Watford flight now bears graffiti which I think is totally at odds with the rural location. The lockies have asked CaRT to remove it but without success, so far.
  12. We’re thinking of doing the Leicester Ring in a week or so’s time. I gather that the lockdown has been eased a little. Has anybody got any recent experience of how things are in the city? Are the moorings at Castle Gardens and Friars Wharf open, for example?
