Quick question. Is there a water point at Westport Lake?

Services only i seem to recall, but no specific water point.

 

Happy to be corrected.

Thanks. I didn’t think so either. How about at Etruria?

Yes I believe so, and at the tunnel of doom (as we used to call it) as Haggis said.

Water at Etruria, just as you turn into tha Caldon. Plenty of room to turn and escape again. No water at Westport lake, good tap at south end of the tunnel. The north end services are right by the entrance, where the tug moors, so you can't get close. Services down a couple of locks on the T&M after the tunnel and water at the stop lock on the Macc.

Canal guide books? Handy for such things as services, water, swatting horse flies etc.

But unfortunately not always fully up to date.

 

This is why I suspect people ask for info. on here as it is more likely to be current.

 

I've been lead to a redundant, long since removed water point by Nicolson's on a few occasions - and if you are looking for reliable up to date info. about pubs in one of those then you are on a hiding to nothing.

 

Good for swatting flies though, yes agreed.
