  1. A decent sized IT is quite a big and heavy thing, so you’ll need to find space for it. Another vote for Airlink though, it just works.
  2. I’ve never seen anyone about, and never felt inclined to stop and ring the bell to see!
  3. Does the place just N of Harecastle tunnel still sell diesel? Otherwise as you say, nothing before Kings Lock in Middlewich.
  4. An inch measured from the bottom of the tank? That’s quite likely the source of your problem. Fuel feeds from typical stern tanks either come from near the bottom, or from a dip tube through the top of the tank. Neither will reach the very bottom of the tank. My first suggestion would be to add some fuel, bleed, and see if the problem goes away.
  5. 42ft 8in x 8ft 9in according to the listing on Canalplan.
  6. In another old post on here, Tim Leech reckoned the top gate of the stop lock was 9ft and a few inches. Wincham make their “Pioneer” boats 9ft and reckon they fit through to the Bridgewater.
  7. “A gentleman is someone who knows how to play the banjo and doesn't” ?
  8. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  9. Been up a few years, but relatively modern. I think it appeared one festival weekend, the bridge tended to get thronged with drinking gongoozlers in the evenings. Informal observation suggests that a majority of the Andersens head the other way and towards the Llangollen.
  10. Made it halfway a few summers ago. Defeated by weed.
  11. “Bramble Cuttings” just below Middlewich is I am old clay pit and I believe belongs to CRT. The site is maintained by Broken Cross Boat Club. There are signs asking you not to stray onto the surrounding farmland, which is fenced off from the site.
  12. Strewth yes, I had a regular gastroscopy unsedated a good few years back. Never again.
  13. The camera crew are fine, an IV slug of fentanyl and midazolam are you’re away with the fairies. The doses of Moviprep.... less so. If it’s not too late, apply some Vaseline after every “event”.
  14. Interesting. The bridge below Big Lock carries the public footpath known as Middlewich FP15, it’s shown on the Cheshire East definitive map.
  15. (Thread swerve) Is that “maintainable at the public expense” a universal thing for rights of way, and how does that apply to public footpaths? The bridge at Big Lock in Middlewich carries an official public footpath.
  16. I don’t know the answer to your question, but the bridge carries the public footpath Middlewich FP15, and there is a formal temporary closure notice up to October 2020. Last I heard CRT had “no plans to repair” https://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/pdf/public-rights-of-way/temporary-path-closures-for-new-page/m/middlewich-fp15-closure-extension-notice-pdf-21kb.pdf
  17. I sit corrected. That wasn’t suggested, but then there was no need to.
  18. Very pleased with our Howdens kitchen in the house, but you’ll need a trade account or a friendly fitter to get stuff ordered. There have a book called the installers guide which is very hard to get hold of, but shows exactly how everything goes together. However, the carcasses come pre-assembled and glued, so that may be an issue on a boat.
  19. Passed you, I think, Hunts Lock-ish. You were descending from view as we ascended.
  20. Hmm... Might head for the Caldon instead, then!
  21. Bother. Was about to head off in that direction from Red Bull. Any indication of how serious?
  22. There is currently a long term (road) stoppage in Runcorn for removal of the “trumpet loop” road which crosses the canal just beyond Victoria Bridge, but I can’t find a plan of the end result handy. The main obstacle is the slip road onto the old Mersey bridge.
  23. <pedant alert> They do. Just not very much.
