    Middlewich Branch breach - Shropshire Union

    They had what appeared to be pipework etc at Wardle lock but I didn't see or hear any pumping when I was there.

    Mooring in Marina unlicenced

    The OP may be advised to check his insurance terms and conditions too. I've had a look at mine and they require that I hold a licence for the "relevant navigation authority". Now I'm not sure whether "not applicable" would apply in the case of a private marina but, if it was my boat, I'd want it clarified.

    Did telling them you didn't possess a TV or watch online not stop them?

    Middlewich Branch breach - Shropshire Union

    I had a wander up to the breach site today; there was quite a bit of activity taking place. The last image is looking back down a rather forlorn Wardle canal.
  5. Is it the festival traffic already beginning to arrive or just boats passing through?
  6. On the subject of low water levels on the Oxford, can anyone who knows this canal well predict whether there is any likelihood of the summit being closed in the next month due to the current dry weather conditions? (I seem to remember a recent post somewhere suggesting this may be the case). I know nobody can say for sure but just may have an idea based on past history. I am travelling rather a long way from the North to Cropredy for the festival and would hate to fall at the final hurdle!

    Premium Bonds Are they worth it?

    I know that; the conversation had moved on to fixed-rate savings so I was commenting on that.
  8. Would anyone like to predict whether the Oxford summit may be closed within the next 4 weeks?

    These offer good rates for fixed savings and are FCSC protected: https://www.atombank.co.uk/fixed-saver

    Hooray it's raining!

    Rain in Cheshire this morning; get the dust off the boat and hopefully a bit of water in the reservoirs. It's not forecast to last though.

    Yes, if you were to maintain the same win rate for the remainder of the year. As you say, even if you didn't, 3% tax-free over the year is more than acceptable and a much better return than mine at the moment.

    Which is 5.45% per annum; positively juicy.

    Trent and Mersey stoppage

    No I didn't receive it either. They did say there would be an update today on the original notice but the work on lock 67 wasn't scheduled until today.

    Am I a coward?

    At least it was a Honda 😃.

    Credit to CRT for a swift repair ahead of schedule.
