  1. unless you pull its wings off, then it becomes a walk
  2. yeah, just seen that, also @Naughty Cal gave more info. I just meant they fix them for motorists waaaay quicker than they do for boaters
  3. i find it odd that they state the “main structure” has failed, yet its down and still allowing vehicle passage. surely the main structure is what allows vehicles to pass over, perhaps they mean main mechanism? Why do they never fail in an open position which would ensure it got fixed PDQ?
  4. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/fishing/places-to-fish/fishing-from-my-boat so hang on, am I reading this right, that as well as the EA rod licence you need a Waterway Wanderers licence as well to fish any canal water that's not covered by a local fishing club? I never knew that
  5. when I saw the title of this post I figured it was going to be one of those "Freemen on/of the land" types that had invaded your mooring, so i'm glad I was wrong
  6. I’m intrigued as to where these lock keepers lodges are on the HNC that are ensured to be authentic because i’ll be beggared if i’ve ever seen any 😂
  7. Marple locks maybe? Macc was fine last month other than the dredging but that just meant slowing and waiting a little bit.
  8. np, knew i had a pic but couldnt remember from which angle, obvs not same as the first in flood pic as when we passed we’d walked up from the basin and had the pooch with us so had to make do with outdoors 😂
  9. i’ll just chuck another hat in the ring, Waterway Routes, we find them excellent for knowing what services are coming up or moorings en route. we use them in combination with a Nicholsons so we can see where pubs used to be
  10. A bloke buys a Yorkshire Parrot, but gets tired of it constantly squawking “Ahm frem Yorkshire me and ahm hard as nails” So bein a bit soft he decides to put a Kestrel in the cage with it and let nature take its course. The next day he looks in the cage and the Kestrel is laying on the bottom, dead. The parrot looks at him and says “Ahm frem Yorkshire me and ahm hard as nails”. Realising there may be some truth to the parrots’ boast, he takes it up a notch and this time puts a Buzzard in the cage. The next morning he looks in the cage and the Buzzard is laying on the bottom, dead. The parrot looks at him and says “Ahm frem Yorkshire me and ahm hard as nails”. Deciding enough is enough the chap puts a Golden Eagle in the cage and leaves them to it. The next day he looks in the cage and the Golden Eagle is on the bottom dead, but the parrot now has no feathers. The parrot fixes him with its beady eye and says “i had to tek me coit off fer that fecker”.
  11. Meteorological Spring is 1st March til 31st May Astronomical Spring depends on spring equinox so this year is 20th March til 21st June i kind of think you already knew this
  12. When I bought the car the tyres were fine, when I collected it a few days later on the Friday evening I simply assumed they were the same, drove it home and parked up outside the house. The copper knocked on the door Saturday morning as I was having breakfast and that's when I discovered they were not the same. Yes with hindsight I should have checked with a torch before driving home, but it was the first car I bought on my own and the guy at the car lot in Bradford had plainly seen how green I was from about 15miles away. It was an expensive lesson learned. The copper just said sort it soon as you can, which I did that same morning. It was nearly three months later when the letter from the CPS dropped on the matt telling me I was due in court
  13. still better than burning clutch
  14. whilst we're on "normal" policy, what's with some people leaving the pawls off? going from the Macc to Middlewich the other week on half the locks were left this way
