  1. 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)
  2. 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.

  4. Just to make it absolutely clear, I have no connection to either the manufacturer or the retailer I linked to. I only added the link as it seemed to be a valid answer to the question posed.

  7. For a different take on the signs in Devon, have a look at https://www.devonlive.com/news/local-news/horse-drawn-barge-near-misses-3182200 .
  8. Advanced Mobile Location is available to the emergency services, as long as the phone used is recent enough to provide it, https://eena.org/aml/ . https://eena.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/2019_07_17_AML_Report_Card_Update.pdf (68 page PDF) says 60% of calls in the UK do provide a location. This will no doubt improve as people replace their phones.
  9. No idea! However, at a guess, I wonder if getting involved in high profile events is so that the technology gets noticed & can then be developed as a production solution. They are also providing the charger for the VW ID.R https://www.aquafuelresearch.com/ & https://www.volkswagen-newsroom.com/en/press-releases/a-vessel-for-technology-beyond-motorsport-the-charging-of-the-idr-system-5041 .
  10. Unless they have changed since this article, they are modified Diesel engines using a byproduct of biodiesel production https://www.fiaformulae.com/en/news/2016/june/insight-formula-e-s-emission-free-charging/
  11. I saw the location tag on the charging station and the reason clicked immediately. There really is not a lot in the area it is intended for. Maybe have a read of https://thedriven.io/2018/12/14/diesel-charge-evs-remote-locations-greener-than-you-think/ to see the logic of this solution.
  12. Kettleshulme is a village which has a stream that flows into Todd Brook above the reservoir. I've just stumbled across this video of damage caused by the rainfall https://youtu.be/LBadbPs6_v0 , also a video at https://www.newsflare.com/video/308209/ross-nursery-in-kettleshulme-near-toddbrook-dam-took-the-brunt-of-the-cloud-burst?a=on The village pub also has some photos of the flooding on its Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2688859381188500&id=154838791257251
  13. Do you have any details of these inflow sluices? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toddbrook_Reservoir describes what is a passive arrangement that diverts flow into the reservoir only when the river is high enough. https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/77820 being a photo of the wier (by the same person who took the 2005 photo of the spillway). The wier flowing is shown at the start of the video I linked to earlier in the thread ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXLVRGxsWgc&feature=youtu.be ). It was also reported, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-49189955 , that the water flowing into the reservoir was being diverted using materials being flown in by the helicopter.
