  5. You do have a point but during the lockdown all the roads were basically empty, even with all the van deliveries, driving for work was noticeably easier, I suspect that having the private cars off the road easily outweighed the increased deliveries

  7. I've just done the same, yes I think it's the rednal arm, didn't know about the bone works though
  8. That's interesting, I don't know tbh and abit embarrassed I didn't find out all considering how often I went down there
  9. No but if your boat is short enough it fits lovely, actually one of the problems on the monty is lack of obvious moorings even for my modern clonecraft, never moored at the Perry but it was a regular spot for local boaters. It's a shame you never made it down to the end, it always needed dredging though
  10. Stock up in Ellesmere, there is Canal Central(?) A sort of tea room/general store near the winding hole but it's not particularly well stocked, it used to do good cake. 2 pubs the queens head, decent moorings but noisy by the A5 and the navigation inn further down towards the end of navigation, decent food in both. 2 service blocks one at bottom of Frankton locks, actually a nice place to moor for a day or so, 2nd nr the Navigation pub Gronwyn warfe is just past the tea rooms which used to be the last winding hole, not sure if there is a new section opened. It's very, very, very quiet, often narrow, don't expect stunning views but it's such a contrast after the llan/m25 and it's stuffed with wildlife, I loved the Monty. Oh and expect to be straffed by the trainee helicopter pilots now and again Oh and there is a sneaky offside mooring in a dead arm with an old lift bridge, if you want isolation
  11. Jacket spuds are comfort food champions How do you cook yours? Wrapped in tin foil Wrapped in tin foil rubbed with olive oil, salt, pepper Tin foil then taken out to crisp for the last half hour Plain and naked No tin foil but rubbed with oil, salt and pepper Of course proper salted butter as dressing, maybe cheese the rest is just guilding the lilly
  12. Pink fir apple, although a main crop is, at least in my opinion, the best tasting salad potato, small awkward shaped tubers low cropping but worth the effort
  13. My understanding of the situation is the same as I have occasionally spoken to a couple of longbow makers and they also suggested this was the case, unsurprisingly actual yew bows are rare nowadays because of difficulty with supply and most of their bows are Ash, or at least are for now
