  1. This is both sides of the Coventry canal between Gipsy Lane bridge and the Griff arm. We'll be wondering what the attraction of the canals is when they are lined with developments and moored boats. https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/coventry-news/nuneaton-borough-plan-gipsy-lane-16633796?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebar https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/coventry-news/outline-plans-1500-jobs-business-16676921
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ANTIQUE-Magic-Lantern-Slide-BRIDGE-AND-HOUSES-ON-CANAL-C1910-PHOTO/362707844961?hash=item5473127f61:g:HpgAAOSwtKRdOEQn is this Caisey Bridge? - what does the team think?!
  3. It most likely is the "Birmingham" , I think he had the Camborne 1955/6 time.
  4. This is another one of Bob Grantham. I knew him well, a great character, liked his darts, a champion player within the BTW social competitions! This is one of the pictures he gave me at the time. He appeared as A (Arthur) Grantham on the fleet lists, but was Bob to his friends. He worked for Barlows as well, swopping between the two in the 1950s/60s. Not sure if this is the "Birmingham", he had the "Camborne" at one time
  5. ISTR having somewhere a newspaper cutting from the 1930s with a FMC wideboat in Leamington - but until I can locate it......
  6. being pedantic, aren't they bricks rather than stones...…… - and as for Coronation Street "Cobbles"...……!
  7. Further to this, here he is again, when boating...... http://collections.canalrivertrust.org.uk/bw197.2.26.15
  8. Probably the "Pipit" . Afraid he's no longer with us.
  9. I believe the "Arthur" got no further than bridge 103, between Flecknoe and Shuckburgh
  10. Did a camping trip with him and a group in 1973, by which time he'd finished with the "William" I seem to remember.
  11. Was this in the days of Dennis Jewiss?
  12. There was the LMS warehouse in Kidderminster - GW territory!
  13. I like the ariel photo, complete with Canal Co. offices , not much left beside the warehouses and (former) "Admiral Codrington"!
