    Do you want to run a waterway?

    There have been three managers in the 14 years the IWA have run the waterway so hardly an annual turnover!

    Camera.

    Walking canals carrying a DSLR and accessories/lenses can be quite wearing, I would advise looking at getting a ‘mirrorless’ which are slowly replacing DSLRs. Not requiring a prism and mirror means that they and the associated accessories are much smaller and lighter. I personally use the Canon M6 but all the major manufacturers have equivalent models.

    There is already something similar planned at Stonebridge lock just north of Tottenham: a bridge is a very expensive option any new bridge will have to be DDA compliant which means extensive ramps. The advantage at Stonebridge is that their is an existing bridge below the lock

    Do you want to run a waterway?

    The IWA took over responsibility for running the Navigation when the owners went into administration and no other body would take it on

    Boat swap

    Came across a boater a few years ago who was part of a private syndicate that regularly swapped boats amongst each other. It appeared to work well, it appeared to be a good way of seeing the system especially for people who were still working and did not have the chance to do long cruises to get to far flung parts!

    HS2 canal crossing points

    Phase 1 is already due to go north of Birmingham to connect to the West Coast main line hence the need for the two crossings of the Trent and Mersey near Fradley!
