    Hatton Locks

    Hatton this morning. Gate is now closed. Pound above is lower than it should be too. It has been reported.
  3. I believe Henry Grantham's boat Forget Me Not was an early conversion from a butty to a motor. Picture from NarrowBoat.
  4. PRESS RELEASE 20 February 2020 RESULTS OF CANAL & RIVER TRUST COUNCIL ELECTIONS The Canal & River Trust has announced the results of the voting to elect new representatives to the charity’s Council. Each elected candidate will take up their voluntary post for four years starting in March 2020. The elected Council representatives are as follows: Private boating: Tim Allen Helen Hutt Dave Mendes da Costa Phil Prettyman Business boating: Heather Duncan Carl Onens Volunteers: Ian McCarthy David Williams Employees: John Ellis Stella Ridgway has been appointed as the new representative for Friends of the Trust and David Kent the new angling representative, both appointed without election as they were the sole candidates. Allan Leighton, chair of the Canal & River Trust, said: “I would like to thank all those who put themselves forward for election, and all those who voted for them. I’d also like to thank the outgoing Council members who have contributed to the success of the Trust these past years “The Council plays an important part in the governance of the Trust and brings new voices, ideas and perspectives to our work. As we continue our work to bring to life our 2,000 miles of waterways, I very much look forward to working with the new representatives when they join us in March.” The Council is made up of elected and independently nominated members including the chairs of the six regional advisory boards and a representative from the Trust’s Welsh Bwrdd. Together they reflect the wide appeal of the waterways – from boating and angling through to walking and conservation. The Council is responsible for the appointment of trustees. It debates important points of principle to provide guidance and perspective from different stakeholders, suggesting issues of concern for the trustees to pursue, and acts as a sounding board for the trustees in relation to the development of proposals and strategy. All new appointees will commence their new terms from 26 March 2020 for four years.

  5. As David said above, Stokie was built after this in 1993/4
  6. You could have been a "Blaster Bates."
  7. So I don't get accused of thread drift the object below is battery connected (gedit) and is ex BT, Alan should recognise it. One of my jobs in BT was to get redundant repeater stations ready for disposal. This was "rescued."
  8. Actually Mexican. The Chihuahua's history is convoluted, and many theories surround the origin of the breed. Both folklore and archaeological finds show that the breed has origins in Mexico. The most common theory is that Chihuahua is descended from the Techichi, a companion dog favored by the Toltec civilization in Mexico.[2] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chihuahua_(dog)
  9. I'm surprised no one has used this method.
  10. Had "Governmentment Property" stamped on each sheet when I started with the G.P.O
  11. It does. Article from Towpath Feb 2020.
  12. Entering the gauging lock, Neptune and Lucy. Jim Payler photo from here: http://www.blisworth.org.uk/images/Payler Albums/Barlow/Barlow.htm
  13. I was told it was the first of an experimental craft being sold by a Marina on the GU, turn right for London, as "Get on the housing ladder." Hence its historical significance. The cabin was yet to be reassembled - believe that you'll believe anything. The skip had contents from the units previous occupier.
  14. By prior appointment with the museum as the boats are at a different site, under lock and key, about 1/2 a mile away. The folks who take you on the tour prefer a group of people, for obvious reasons, but when I went, 2018, a coach coming was delayed by an accident on the M6 so rather than keep me hanging around I got a personal tour.
