  1. I had this problem and it turned out to be a poor earth on the distribution panel. In effect the Voltage at the led bulb was marginal and anything else kicking in caused it to drop further and flickering to occur. I suggest you check all your connections.
  2. If true it will place a question mark over the vast majority of restoration projects currently being undertaken.
  3. A couple of years ago I left my keys in my coat in the pub. I got back to the boat moored in Etruria and convinced myself I'd locked myself out. I went to a local shop and bought the cheapest of screwdrivers. Using the screwdriver I managed to take the bathroom window out. Dozens of people passed on the towpath and no one batted an eyelid. You'd better weld up your windows too.
  4. I'm not sure what the solution is but it strikes me as ridiculous that services to Leeds and beyond start off from Manchester Piccadilly and travel west via Oxford Road and Victoria before heading towards Yorkshire. If they didn't do that they could offer a stopping service to Huddersfield and still arrive in a similar time frame as the current service. I have never tried to do the Rail Trail but I am picking off the pubs on it one or two at a time each time we fancy a day out. Station Bar in Dewsbury plus The Commercial last time out.
  5. The ones on the Digbeth branch are no longer in use or at least they weren't in July.
  6. I think the Ale Trailers have been frustrated to a limited extent by the changes to the rail franchises. It's possible to get to Stalybridge from Manchester on Northern Rail and similar on the Eastern side but to go over the top you have to use Trans Pennine express which doesn't stop at many stations at all.
  7. A lockie told me in July that it was costing too much money to call someone out to replace vandalised anti vandal locks so C&RT have decided to retire them on some locks. The ones at Trentham lock went some time ago.
  8. That is a fallacy pedalled by bicycle manufacturers marketing departments
  9. The OP has got no chance of getting the boat back to Shire Cruisers on time with all these recommendations.
  10. There are two decent bars on Huddersfield station plus The Grove is worth searching out although its a mile or so from the junction of the narrow and the Broad.
  11. Moor outside Tesco at Stalybridge. Go to Stalybridge Buffet Bar. There are other decent pubs in Stalybridge but the Buffet Bar is King for wet led pubs. Beyond that you are looking at Mossley or Greenfield but they are a few hours cruise away from Portland Basin. Uppermill is a bit of a dessert in my opinion but the Diggle Hotel was OK last time I was in there. Lots of choice once through Stanedge. I see I concur with David
  12. That's an interesting former on the roof. I wonder what the plans are for it

  15. We met some owners of Hatherton last month who had done exactly that. Sold their share to move to somewhere near Braunston only to find Hatherton was relocating to the same marina.
