Today in 2017 at Gray on the R. Saone. This converted tug had belonged to a friend of ours for many years and had just been sold to this family who were enjoying it.


I like the "go-faster" fenders.

On this day in 2011


Streethay Wharf, Coventry C

AndrewDenny (of WW- see WaterwaysWorld Sept2011 p42) is viewing the building of AliceToo as a front-end (a "shunt") to convert the fifty-six foot boat Alice into seventy-foot, which can be unhitched and breasted for shorter locks. Someone will be along in a mo to say how it has progressed over the years. I'm not aware of any repeat orders though.

Is that the Weedon military depot? We had a walk round it once.

Yes indeed . Because our GP won’t do ear syringing due to the pandemic I had to go to a clinic which is in the old depot. Most of the buildings now seem to be occupied.

The rotating footbridge over the old Knostrop Flood Lock (A+C Leeds), now no longer used as a floodlock because of the Leeds Flood Alleviation scheme which incorporated the canal section into a widened river,  Compare 26Feb2013  26Jun2014  18Jul2020




and looking northwest towards the Flood Lock past Knostrop Depot

On this day 2018

A wet run from Wroxham to Coltishall with Tony Anderson (AKA Tony Tugboat) on his little Freeman Black Cat. Then a sunny run up to the lock in the Freeman after we had all dried out in the pub :lol:
