    canal bucket list?

    I'v got this painted by Maurice Peasland but it doesn't appear to have a list.
  2. Okay for either date. I would like a warning if there is to be no food though, thank you.

    canal bucket list?

    Something quite simple, having crossed the Pontcysyllte in a hire boat I would like to cross it in our own boat.

    Carbunckle Cup Boat Award

    If it was the thread I put up it was probably lost because of the site crash and avoided the automatic back up. I think I will leave it where it is, out in the ether somewhere.

    Common Sense In A Court

    No odds to me as I don't follow rugby or football. I like The Greyhound as there is no piped music, food whilst not Cordon Bleu is wholesome, don't drink beer so I know not of that. Wine is always palatable. Also if I can get what was the shop window seat, I can watch the varying degrees of success of the boats getting round the turn in one. The other week I watched a 53 odd footer use a bow thruster to get round!!!!! How on earth did the working boaters manage? Rhetorical question. Sorry for taking the thread off track.

    Common Sense In A Court

    I may be wrong but I think this was brought about after some football "supporters?" got out of hand either before or after a match at the Ricoh Arena which is about a mile away from The Greyhound as the crow flies.

    Common Sense In A Court

    After visiting "my" narrowboat captain I go to the Greyhound for some lunch. The landlord has placed notices on the tables to the effect, this is my home, you are welcome to stay as long as you behave yourself. If you don't you will be asked to leave.

    Parking in Trevor

    Parked there on many occasions never had any trouble. Never stopped overnight. The public car park is on the RHS of the cut. The area on the LHS is the Anglo Welsh base. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/places-to-visit/pontcysyllte-aqueduct-world-heritage-site Always phone Anglo Welsh to see if they would allow visitor parking? https://www.anglowelsh.co.uk/Locations/Bases/Trevor
  13. Anyone going? I'll be taking "My" narrowboat Captain as he wants to see Hardy, which he steered on many an occasion.

    The upturn of the bottom of the hull. When these Pimblott boats ran empty the base plate at the bow was above the water line.
