NB This boat may have been re-named when it left the Bridge Inn at Ratho on the Union Canal.

Oh, I didn't know it had left the Bridge Inn. Certainly the restaurant boats weren't kept in as good condition as Ronnie kept them and they looked a bit sad the last time I saw them

Alright, you can all stand down. Turns out to be Redding Road, opposite the Polmont Young Offenders Prison and outside Tesco on the Union Canal. In my defence my informant did write Reading!

Had me puzzled to start with as there is a large riveted iron Dutch barge type of vessel converted to a restaurant boat in the weir stream on the K&A at Reading, outside Bel And The Dragon. I thought it must be this boat. I dunno it's name.

But nevertheless, has the restaurant boat sunk, wherever it is?

 

 

 

Well and truly. The gunnels are just under water .......... which serves to illustrate just how silted the Union Canal has become!

Should be an easy lift, then.

 

I think Pride of Belhaven was sold fairly recently.
