  1. Aster and Salvo at Sutton Stop

    Mr. Veater and I believe his secretary was Miss Edwards.
  2. Hillmorton to Clifton stretch ruined.

    On the original plans a mile wide "nature corridor" was planned between the canal and the nearest buildings. Looking at the recent plans I wonder what happened to that? ££££ possibly?

    Colin, the picture of Salvo came from here: http://collections.canalrivertrust.org.uk/bw197.2.24.26 BW197/2/24/26 "OC Salvo before 1964" Description View of the converted butty "Salvo" and another boat moored near a large crane Date 1960s Reference code BW197/2/24/26 Extent & medium 1 colour slide
  4. Aster and Salvo at Sutton Stop

    Well spotted. There is a Sally Army badge on the outside boat and the inside boat has a + on the side of the cabin. The cottage was originally Sephton's Yard. The cottage is still there although it has been altered somewhat.

  6. Cardboard Boats

    Yes, and / or Scalefour and P4 The Scalefour Society caters for the needs of railway modellers working to the scale of 4mm/ft (1:76.2), the most popular of the British model railway scales. It promotes and encourages the use of effective modelling techniques and fine scale standards among all 4mm railway modellers with a particular emphasis on the use of scale wheels and track. https://www.scalefour.org/ http://p4layouts.org.uk/ http://www.emgs.org/ EM means Eighteen Millimetres – the original finescale track gauge adopted by 4mm scale modellers in the mid-1950s (now 18.2mm).

    It was a good send off. About 170 folks at his service at Rainsbrook Crematorium.
  8. Narrowboat at sea adventure

    One of the many times I went offshore in a proper yacht I met my friends Hugheee & Beeert. Worst I've ever been in is a F9 between St Malo & Guernsey. I certainly wouldn't want to do that in a narrow boat.
