  9. The above picture was from a site-visit of the (then) C&RT North East Partnership, and to explain the navigational difficulties and why the management of the river ought to be improved
  10. Battyeford C+H is particularly awful for approaching downriver ... The weir boom is immediately beyond the Hauling bridge with the white sign in the middle distance. There is nowhere to pause in the river - with an anchor possibly ?? The turn is just beyond the bridge on the right .... ... there is a vertical ladder but no landing stage, and no sensible way to secure the backend if tempted to leave from the front and use the ladder (to try to open some closed floodgates). And if the river has risen since the gates were closed, I would be unkeen to try to try the wind above the weirboom to return upriver. To close the gates safely, need to ensure the quarter mile upriver is clear, and there is information at Cooper Bridge Lock No 13 that the river has been closed. C&RT people have the information and communications to do this - they may not do it properly, of course - but boaters are less likely to be able to.
  11. We find out how good insurance companies are when we want money from them, rather than the other way around ...
