  1. 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
  2. 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.

  6. The top part looks similar to https://www.oldindustriallamps.com/a-55719506/factory-lights-old-industrial-lighting/industrial-lamp-holophane/#description
  7. 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.
  8. 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"
  9. CRT have this list of places that should be open, best to call first https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/safety-on-our-waterways/coronavirus/coronavirus-and-boating-faqs/privately-provided-boating-facilities

  11. Remember that the Voc is at a certain temperature and there will be a factor that it increases by for each degree centigrade below that temperature. Explained, with a worked example, at https://www.ecmweb.com/renewables/article/20896643/the-highs-and-lows-of-photovoltaic-system-calculations a fair way down the page. so you might need to consider what they will be doing on a really cold winters day.
  12. The power shouldn't be a problem, the specifications for the smart version is a max power of 440w. Possibly of more concern is the maximum voltage that you will get out of your 4 panels in series, as noted in the manual. Perhaps two parallel pairs of series connected panels would be better. The images are from the smart solar manual. If yours is the non smart version, you can get the right manual to check from the Victron website.
  13. The details of this are at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/air-quality-using-cleaner-fuels-for-domestic-burning
  14. This document, https://nabo.org.uk/files/members/trent_sg.pdf , from 2009 says: "BOOKING and MAKING PASSAGE Give 24 hours notice to the keepers before using the tidal locks. " So it seems that the need to book existed long before CRT, and so the reason given by nbw is nonsense. (the article has been edited to remove the misleading photo of a completely different river)
  15. Hardly news! A quick search, shows that booking has been necessary for years. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notices/9123-keadby-lock is a notice from 2016 stating that 24 hours notice is needed, it was replaced by https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notices/9532-booking-information-keadby-lock . i suppose that blog must have received the latest update, https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notices/16230-booking-information-keadby-lock , two days ago.
