  1. Whole heartedly agree. CRT, and the latter end of BW’s reign, they have been losing their way. Getting it all wrong on so many levels, in my view of course.
  2. We are presently in Skipton. Local knowledge is that the firm that responded to the initial alarm call at Bradley, made the area safe with coffa (spell check) dams etc. Said if they get the go ahead they could complete the repair in three weeks. Since, CRT have decided to put the job out to tender, are just in receipt of the tenders and studying them. Then they will meet with potential contractors and eventually award the contract. Knowledge on the ground is that the job will take three months from start. I have walked to the stoppage and I couldn’t see the 2 mtr hole that has been mentioned. There was a relatively small amount of water between the dams with pumps running. With a 2 mtr hole I didn’t expect to see any water between the dams. What are CRT on? For goodness sake. The lock repair that overran and went considerably over budget at Eshton Lock recently surely rang a few bells within CRT. Rumour has it that the very same contractor might well get the job at Bradley. A bit of back scratching perhaps. I feel for the local canal businesses that are experiencing prolonged stoppages and disruptions.

  4. Is the waste compound at Skipton not the responsibility of CRT? And possibly Biffa.

  7. Either walk by the Road or down the Black Path and beyond. Not far.
  8. Years ago, about six years, I ventured into the Bell &Barge for a beer. Whilst waiting I heard a commotion from the kitchen direction. After waiting for a while who I took as being the Manager(ess) came out and said the ‘so and so’ thinks he’s a bloody cook for some reason. It have never eaten in there. Many do, I don’t. Theres a Hungry Horse (Peckish Donkey I call it) down beyond Tesco for standard fayre.
  9. I reckon it’s been like that for at least two weeks or more. I spoke to a guy today who had a key for the Elsan and was just finishing emptying two cassette units said it was like that weeks ago when he was there last time.
  10. I have written to CRT requesting some attention to the waste compound at Skipton. It’s a bit full and I’m fairly confident there’s more than a couple of rats living there.
  11. So, not that it matters one iota, but I need to ask, are you male or female LadyG? Your profile might suggest Male. I’m quite house trained, for a male. Would a gay male cook better clean better and look after someone better then? A bit type casting. Oh., I see what you’re doing now. Also a person is only unknown immediately prior to the point of meeting.
