  2. I used to hire that size from Swanline so I'm may well have hired your boat before you owned it.
  3. Yes I've spotted a few oddities while mapping, this is near Welford on the old OS Maps.
  4. I thought it was probably an old aerial, but interesting that they actually caught it
  5. While mapping the Middlewhich branch I came across this view of Stanthorne aqueduct on Bing maps, the current Google view shows it in water. Is this current work or an old view?
  6. I used to play trumpet as well, I hadn't played it for some time so gave it to a very talented teenager. Still got the Bugle though so anyone for reveille on the towpath.
  7. If someone finds some plans that are in a bit of a dodgy condition I can redraw them on CAD, draughtsman is my job.

  10. Worcester & Birmingham canal & Stratford canal now done, I'm now adding the the locks, bridges and other features to the Shropshire Union canal, this is going to take a while with the Shrewsbury canal and all the tub boat canals around Telford.
  11. The Middlewich branch was originally part of the Chester canal, built by the combined Ellemere & Chester canal company, all later merged with the Birmingham & Liverpool Juncion canal, Shrewsbury canal and several others to form the Shropshire Union.
  12. This stuff will do the job. https://www.premseal.co.uk/product/metal-roofing-cladding-premseal-swrp10/

  14. Mines one of these, you can see the old fashioned brass steam valves that got finger burning hot and is slightly worse condition than this one I found on Ebay for £150
  15. Mines older than that one, it has the brass steam taps that you needed pliers to operate, unfortunately storage in the shed has taken a toll on it. I've had another model arrive from Hornby today.
  16. I still have mine but it needs a bit of restoration now
