  1. Conveyer belt straight to the burger press
  2. 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"
  3. The garden borders the Oxford Canal with a private mooring with power connected.

  5. 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.
  6. Last week. Bridge 70 (restored) Old Uttoxeter Canal course.
  7. I will have to make it harder next time!
  8. Where is this? Image taken yesterday.
  9. I do not know. It could just be the flue collar. Not knowing the Epping, not sure where it starts or stops. Are flue collars easy to buy and replace?
  10. This Epping has a cracked collar. Any suggestions for how to repair/replace? Many thanks
  11. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  12. Mooring with the house. Might be a tad expensive. 😄 https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/118579481#/?channel=RES_BUY
  13. Tim, I put that on the gasholder appreciation site - credit to you. Nice shot.
  14. Thanks- Bethnal Green Holders. Correct - the lattice framework is similar (sort of!) to one that was at St Pancras <below> - that's my excuse! 😆
  15. Tunnel is in Twickenham.
  16. What has that got going for it apart from being old?
  17. Yup the original post was the reflected sound of someone of no experience. Sent into a spin by what dross they are suckered into reading. And then being naive enough to believe it.
  18. Mains gas on a boat is possible. There is a specific gas engineering standard for it iirc. Brentford had some boats near or on the High St connected. Meter on the shore, great big floppy hose connector to account for tidal range.
  19. Did not see the other thread. Thanks to mods who moved it. You seem very aggresive. I'm out in fields chainsawing a huge tree up that fell over, nowhere near a shop, just read it on a news feed whilst taking a break.
