  1. Interesting photos, no wonder we struggled to get deeper boats up the extension..................... Pretty obvious too that the 'restoration' work at that particular point was a complete bodge job LCC you have clay on your hands!
  2. Just how much has that 'little' excercise cost I wonder? If the 'vandals' are reading this thread? They could quite easily put CaRT out of business over one smashing weekend down the Atherstone flight......................................
  3. They are working, just spoke to Simon (Wain) he's tried to return your call without success B Boats are having some cast.....who knows when that will be....so yes they can but no they can't, at the moment.
  4. There but for the grace of god goes the Dunton windlass.....................................................................
  5. I can say that this an excellent publication full of interesting facts and photos and in hard back too. Good value @ £25. Got my copy about 2 weeks ago and devoured it in 2 nights.........working my way sreadily through the rest of my canal book collection now
  6. The ad. says the cans date to the 1930s, have they been repainted or been hanging about for 40 years unpainted?!!! I have a can you can paint.................I'll meet you half way up the M6 at a safe distance of course maybe you on the Nortbound carriage and me on the Southbound.................there's plenty of room on there at the moment. 😆 Hope your keeping well Dave.
  7. Wey & Arun Devils Hole Lock.......I think..I could check my library but that would be cheating.... definitely W & A ....many happy hours spent working on that particular canal
  8. You are bored aren't you.................how many days to go now?? The thought of you and The Buzzcocks intrigues me aah but we were all younger then let's hope we all get a lot older................................. By the way the vid wouldn't play directly from your link, however I do have The Buzzcocks in my lengthy and varied lengthof artists on Itunes Get well soon.....
  9. Historical Map series No.2 Canals of Birmingham and the Black Country.............covers the lot all on one map.
  10. Could you tell me which boat that is please? I've heard you know about stuff like this Real Jaffa cakes for the right answer.
  11. Ach zo it was only a matter of time. Hitler has been to Pooley Hall then Braunston now he's apparently on his way to Birmingham. For you, you 2.1336M schweinehunds das krieg ist zu ende. Star is up for sale I'm buying a Spitfire.
  12. Have you the cap to go with the badge? I think you'll look very fetching wearing that ensemble on the back of the Otley
  13. I think you'll find that it's not only historic craft that are getting stuck. there have been instances of private and hire boats struggling through and some getting stuck. There is some serious subsidence occuring here which has accelerated alarmingly in the last couple of years. I've been working close by here for a few years now and I can assure you you don't need a laser or tape measure to see the how the lock is slowly collapsing into the sunset........ Hopefully this Winters stoppage will arrest this damage otherwise you'll be struggling to get a canoe up the flight.
