  1. Yet they still construct new roads without dedicated cycle lanes and build new houses without solar panels on south facing roofs.
  2. There’s nice moorings just past the Rufford Branch junction.
  3. The small private marina you refer to is called Ellerbeck narrowboats. It’s about half a mile from white bear off Rawlinson Lane.
  4. Probably not in your budget but I can’t recommend Brompton enough. They’re superb bikes and a step above all the competition. We’ve ridden ours everywhere from the towpath to the Alps.
  5. The panels have an open circuit voltage of 21.24v so a combined voltage of 84.96 is well below the 100v max or am I missing something?
  6. I would like to add an additional solar panel to my current array. This would make the system comprise of 4 x 100w panels wired in series. The charge controller that’s fitted along with 3 existing panels is a Victron 100/30 i.e 100v/30amp. Using the calculation for required controller size, peak panel watts / battery voltage a figure of 33amps is stated. 400w/12v = 33.3 amps this is 3 amps more than my Victron controller capacity. Would It be safe to add the 4th solar panel without changing the controller as the over capacity of the panels is only 3amps?
  7. I can thoroughly recommend Briare in the Loire valley. No shortage of canals to explore
  8. Fettlers wharf marina built several similar floating homes before it changed hands.
  9. Congratulations, it’s a lovely boat. We pass it regularly at Lymm and every time I wonder about selling ours to buy it.
  10. Red rock visitor moorings at bridge 63 are a good place to moor not far from Haigh. Heading from the top of Wigan flight you’ll pass the permanent moorings, visitor moorings are just the other side of bridge 63.
  11. A JCB on site was used to trash the control box and push a site cabin into the canal. The damage is fairly severe.
