  1. Dave and Chris moor at Henhull on the Shropshire Union and we became friends when we also moored at this site. Even though we have moved to Anderton ,we have kept in touch and my wife and I are proud to have known Dave. Some of you may not know that Dave & Chris were editors of the Shropshire Union Canal Society magazine "Cuttings" for many years and transformed the mag. until Dave was forced by ill health to hand over to Rod & Carol Hamilton-King; who have carried on in an excellent similar style. DOR will be sadly missed.

  14. I took great delight in mooring on the forbidden bit at Nantwich recently; the trees have now grown such that one can bairly see the houses! Unfortunately nobody from CRT challenged me!
  15. I am sorry to say that I have not heard much of boating interest in this post. Surely we can have a decent conversation without descending into the childish sniping which occurs daily in the House of Commons!! Finally, Isobel started this but at no time has she detailed the circumstances of the altercation! I for one would like to know where she was,what kind of mooring was it and was she within her rights to be there!?
