  1. CaRT website, under my boat licence, bookings,book a passage. Click on Bridgewater Passage and select travel on to a trust navigation.

  4. Is this your own boat or your charity boat? Just curious.

  6. The narrow boat has now got through but the wide beam and 2 more narrowboats were stuck at 10.45am.
  7. More problems this morning (Fri 29.4) at the junction pound. A wide beam heading towards Liverpool and a narrow boat heading towards Leigh have been stuck in the middle of the canal overnight due to the low water levels.
  8. Volunteers don't usually cover the big lock and are usually at the Middlewich 3 locks. As previously said you should be able to wind the boat about 100 yards before the lock or 200 yards after the lock just past the park. Have a look at the Narrowboat Pirate vlog no 6 (Cruising my NB to Middlewich via Bramble Cuttings) as it features the big lock near the end. Barton tunnel is not timed and Saltersford and Preston Brook tunnels are on the hour northbound (towards Lymm) and on the half hour southbound (towards Middlewich)
  9. Another delay. Now reopening at 12 noon Wednesday 20th April.
  10. Problems ongoing this morning, 2 hire boats grounded at the bottom of the locks in the junction pound. Numerous pounds on the flight low or empty but workers are removing all their equipment from the stoppage site at lock 73 in preparation for reopening.
  11. Junction pound opened again last night but water levels were still lower than usual this morning.
  12. I have just cycled the towpath and CaRT have just put padlocks on Henhurst Lock and Poolstock no 2 bottom lock until water levels recover. The Poolstock pound was empty as usual and the junction pound was very low. Numerous pounds in the flight are empty and there is very little water coming down the flight.
  13. The trip boat is great if you get behind it. Especially if you are single handed.
  14. The flight is now only expected to reopen on Tuesday 19th April at 5.00pm which of course means Wednesday morning. Info from CaRT.
