  2. http://www.spanglefish.com/thecoldashbyrambler/coldashbysramblingexplorer.asp#ram5 has a photo of the towpath diversion sign that I can recall from when I was there in 2016. It also says that the bridge has been removed. https://www.britishwalks.org/walks/2005/653.php from 2005 mentions that the bridge was There but closed.
  3. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/news-and-views/news/an-update-on-the-aire-and-calder-navigation-breach Update 23/12/20 We are aware that where the water levels in the navigation have dropped, isolated sections along the bank have moved inwards as a result of the loss of pressure from the water. Whilst this looks unsightly, it does happen from time to time with canals where we take the water out for maintenance. It is not a cause for concern. Our engineers have checked the waterway this morning and will continue to do so.
  4. Or you could read the original CRT news item at https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/news-and-views/news/gbp1-million-improvement-of-leicesters-waterways-gets-under-way which doesn't conveniently omit the locations of the new moorings that are part of th eproject

  6. One of the photos at http://www.ashbycanal.org.uk/breach-of-the-ashby-canal-north-of-snarestone-wharf-on-sunday-29th-november-2020/ shows the ditch and the culvert
  7. Or the weird world of Google. I just tried "David Jones boat builder Chester" and whilst there's not a lot of info, this news report from 2009 https://www.cheshire-live.co.uk/news/chester-cheshire-news/tenant-sought-historic-chester-boatyard-5218271 does mention a David Jones "David Jones, 67, who repaired craft there for 35 years, is now semi-retired." As he was a tenant rather than the owner of the boatyard, I would imagine that it's unlikely that the current owners have any old records from his time there, but might be worth asking http://www.taylorsboatyard.co.uk/
  8. What about: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/183235/Canal-rivers-grant-agreement.pdf 9.3 Notwithstanding the regular content and cycle of Review Meetings, in the financial year 2021/22 a review will take place to consider whether, and if so, the extent to which there is a case to continue to support by Grant the public benefits (including, but not by way of limitation, provision of land drainage, flood mitigation and other public safety benefits) provided by the waterways under CRT’s stewardship beyond the end of the Grant Period. The 2021/22 Review shall take into account, among other matters, CRT’s performance of its obligations arising under the Grant Agreement. Defra shall issue a report setting out the conclusions of this review with regard to continued support of CRT by Grant beyond the term of this Grant Agreement on or before 1 July 2022
  9. The Curdworth flight has ground paddles at both ends of the locks, e.g. https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3672660 . A fault with one of the paddles at the bottom gate end would allow the lock to drain, possibly causing a problem with completely filling the lock.

  13. The top part looks similar to https://www.oldindustriallamps.com/a-55719506/factory-lights-old-industrial-lighting/industrial-lamp-holophane/#description
  14. The manual for that item, available on the Victron website at https://www.victronenergy.com/upload/documents/Manual-EasyPlus-1600-EN-NL-FR-DE-ES.pdf identifies them as G-ST 18i.
  15. https://www.waterways.org.uk/chester/tom_rolt_100_rally "During the afternoon, a blue plaque was also placed on Tom Rolt’s birthplace, 7 South View, Eaton Road, commemorating the fact that he was born in Chester in 1910"
