  1. Only speculation, but it sounds as though Monte-D is aboard and out for a holiday.
  2. https://www.facebook.com/Boatworx-Transport-101246255997532 Stuart lives on a boat at Nationwide Narrowboats in Thorne, worth giving him a call.

  5. I didn't, by the time I'd figured it all out, I just turned over and listened to the 'drum and bass'!
  6. I'm moored just to the West of Alrewas, nice peaceful spot. Sometime during the night I woke and could hear booming 'music' in the distance. I must have dozed back off, but them woke with a start as the boat banged against the side and heard chatting as a boat went passed heading west, this was 3-00 am. About 5 minutes later, the booming 'music' started again and it was about 35 minutes before it subsided into the distance!
  7. Thanks CC, after sitting with the Nicholson for the last half hour, that's what I decided. So, it's back to Autherley Junction and then to Great Haywood.
  8. Decision to be made, I've just turned onto the Middlewich branch of the Shroppie and heading towards this closure. If it is open Monday, then I can cope with 1 days waiting. Or, do I turn around and head back to Autherley Junction and up the Staffs and Worcs to Great Haywood thus cutting this stretch out? Any thoughts?
  9. Done the Adderly and Audlem locks today, now moored below lock 15 and intend sitting it out 'till Wednesday.
  10. Update Left about 7-10 this morning, was through the Delph flight around 9-20, all the locks were against me!! A nice slow chug to Leys Junction and in lock 1 just after 10-00, again set against me, same at lock 2. Lock 3, the gate was open and a smiling young chap standing there, I greeted him with 'you must be John, your reputation goes before you'. We worked all the locks together and had moored up below lock 16 just after 1-00. After coffee, Iced lollies and choc ices, he's now gone back up the flight to see if there's anybody else in need of his help. I'm going to carry on into Stourbridge and moor there for the night. Thank you all Kevin
  11. Thanks everyone, I've sent a message to the Dudley Canal Trust. Whatever happens, it's going to be a hot and sticky couple of days!
  12. I'll keep my eyes peeled and hope he sees me, thanks.
  13. Can you give any indication where please? I've never done this stretch before. I'm not on a schedule, but have been advised that there is nowhere suitable to stop or break the journey up.
  14. Are we talking about the same locks? I'm looking at the 16 Stourbridge locks on the Stourbridge Canal.
