  1. Can you reference that policy?
  2. I disagree. Why put the agreement ar risk for the sake of a simple, free online booking?
  3. Very true. This was exactly the case once when we went through; we ended up giving a training session to hirers who were working out what to do from both directions and helped them through.
  4. I'm chuckling to myself as I remember the time I was in the queue and assisting passage when the lockkeeper went for his lunch. For some reason everyone then looked to me for direction to which I felt duty-bound! Tempers were beginning to fray a little and I was pleased when it was my turn to go so I could relinquish the responsibility!
  5. Precisely this. I've just changed a couple of mine which were fine apart from the junction with metal plumbing where they were cracking and starting to leak.
  6. Gargrave to Foulridge is one of the most scenic sections on the network.
  7. I had the same concern before having my panels fitted, but ended up with some slimline ones (150w each) which left a comfortable walkway on either side.
  8. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  9. Scruffy boats are one thing, but when the scruffiness spills onto the towpath it is unacceptable. The same scruffiness often goes hand- in-hand with breaches of the rules and antisocial behaviour. It's hardly surprising that this creates resentment from not only the general public but responsible boaters too.
  10. I actually think the article is quite balanced, outlining the need for Government support and the the rationale for justifying this, whilst recognising the importance of boating.
  11. To be fair, in this issue there is a very good article on the future funding of CRT: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/boating/boating-blogs-and-features/the-boaters-update/boaters-update-3-december-2021?utm_source=mailchimp&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=boating_2021

  13. Yes, that's what I use. Tesa Moll Thermo Cover: 4m X 1.5 m covers 5 typical "bus style" windows and, importantly, the tape peels off easily without leaving a residue on the wooden frame. I have used it for years and found it very effective and unobtrusive.
  14. If you do a good job of fitting it without creases (a bit of an art but possible with care) it can be almost invisible.
  15. In my case, the hopper brackets are attached by two screws which can easily be removed.
  16. The dates should be online any time now
  17. This was the canal that came to my mind for proximity over a longer distance: it is cheek by jowel with the railway for around five miles.
  18. North West News tonight report that CRT expect the repair could take 6 months.

    Coal Price

    A local coal merchant told me that the cost of Excel was increasing by £60 per ton.
  20. Precisely. Sounds utter tripe to me.
  21. Perhaps not, but may have increased interest now due to the focus on climate change.
  22. Water firms launch £500m reservoirs plan as climate change advances https://mol.im/a/9990969 via http://dailym.ai/android
