  1. Lots of dosh needed. Probably a flood risk? https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/127433051#/?channel=RES_BUY
  2. Someone told me they thought it was a unique arrangement. I said it's not but struggled to come with an example!
  3. Not sure if these been seen here before. Estimated date of first one - first half of 1930's?
  4. Looking for examples like this - lock either side of river (Old Uttoxeter Canal). Can anyone think of one?
  5. Alton, Staffs also has an old castle built originally in the 12th Century. Plus it had the canal run through it.
  6. The Alton cottage (at Crumpwood end of Alton) was originally built as the weir keepers cottage in around 1810. The canal (Uttoxeter) opening ceremony was held at Crumpwood in September 1811. The images below are very close to the cottage. The only Uttoxeter Canal bridge still in situ.
  7. Uttoxeter Canal (Alton Staffs). Plot in pink. You can still see Carringtons Lock.
  8. https://www.fineandcountry.com/property-sale/3-bedroom-detached-house-for-sale-in-staffordshire-alton-quixhill-lane/2654889 Two things. I reckon way overpriced. The canal is not in water where it used to cross the Churnet.
  9. Conveyer belt straight to the burger press
  10. I think you may be correct. Have seen boats moving but am at far end. "Since November 2021, the Trust’s contractors have been working between Ivy House Lift Bridge and Bucknall Road Bridge on the Caldon Canal to stop leakage from the canal through the embankment. As the project has progressed we encountered problems that were not expected and as a consequence were unable to plan for. We are investigating how these could have been better predicted. As a result the works have unfortunately run significantly behind schedule. Regrettably it is now expected that the work will continue until the summer, with the canal unable to reopen until 23 June 2022. We are sorry about this late announcement and are very aware that this will impact on many boaters planned boat movements for this spring and early summer. We recognise it would have been helpful to let some people planning their boating know earlier, however we wanted to establish all the facts to get clarity on the length of the extension before making an announcement. We are working with our Navigation Advisory group to look at further improvements to communicate with boaters when work’s don’t go as planned. We are making every effort to reopen the canal as quickly as possible and will look for any opportunity to bring the completion forward. We have already implemented weekend working"
  11. The garden borders the Oxford Canal with a private mooring with power connected.

  13. No I think the Caldon is fully open? Wonder if it was Hetty! Looking to move my boat to the Caldon - as it's so close.
  14. Last week. Bridge 70 (restored) Old Uttoxeter Canal course.
