Staveley has changed from when I knew it as a boy. It was all factory and long-funnelled ex-Midland Railway shunting engines. I assume that the canal used to serve Staveley Works.

We're currently moored at Braunston, having got there last Sunday.


Only one pair of historic boats moored near the Nelson and none in the Marina.


The Marina buildings are fenced off, so no casual mooching around allowed, only proper customers.

Thank you, that's fascinating. I had no idea that the outer gates were converted to a guillotine so recently. The gate recesses are still visible.  The inner gate is dated about 1960 - I was there only yesterday.
