  1. ok this gives me a better idea.
  2. Only seen it on Google street view. All looks a bit sad which is a shame.
  3. Thanks for your reply. We're actually filming. Does this mean Wigan Pier is covered in scaffold?
  4. Hi we're passing through Wigan later in the week travelling from the Leigh branch and heading towards Liverpool. Is Wigan worth a look and where's best to moor up? Can you moor up near Wigan Pier and if so is it safe? Thanks!
  5. who were the reservoirs sold off to? did the regional water authorities buy them?
  6. Hi we're passing through later this week. I've been told it's an area to watch out - by other boaters. Scare stories or any truth in this? Thanks
  7. Each of the locks featured in the programme will be named and it's rise will appear on screen. Thought it'd be of interest to viewers.
  8. Alan, I'm producing a new BBC4 series called Canal Boat Diaries. Any idea where I get further information then on lock depths for the Rochdale? Is canal plan ac accurate for other parts of the system - as I've been using this source.
  9. oh thank you ! great tip. will pick up a guide today.
  10. Can anyone help. I usually use Canal Plan AC for things like this - however there's no stats for the fall of: Stubbing Upper Lock Todmorden Guillotine Lock Gauxholme Lowest Lock Are the Rochdale lock depths listed anywhere? Any help much appreciated.
  11. thanks everyone for all the tips. really helpful. if you're interested the rochdale will be epiosde 3 in the series. the overall journey is from shardlow to liverpool via the t&m, caldon, macc, peak forest, huddersfield narrow & broad, c&h, rochdale, bridgewater and l&l.
  12. thanks - it's a really great website ! thanks for this shot it's a great tip !
  13. I'm wanting to film with a drone from the best vantage points along the Rochdale. It's a canal I've never cruised. Could you suggest the best bits with dramatic landscapes? Lock or bridge numbers would be really helpful. It's for a new BBC4 series called 'Narrowboat Diaries' which will be on later in the year. Many thanks !
  14. the tree has been removed and the guillotine lock is fixed. been through it today
  15. closed 24e is closed. there's still a stoppage. we're stuck there!
