Yes she’s still there.

If you are thinking of cruising from Lady Lane to FMM in the near future, don’t forget that Broad St bridge is closed until 15th March.

Thanks for the information

:)

Wow everyone

:)

 

Thanks for the information, seems to be 90% good for us.

 

Takeaways very important, reversing is always a problem for my boat but at the moment at Lady Lane, I'm moored on the arm which is a real pain. Electric hook up will be a fantastic thing for us.

:)

 

The BCN challenge will be a problem

:(

 

Thanks once again, I'll contact the marina.

Fazeley Mill Marina is on the BCN.  Doesn't the BCN challenge go out that far?

Sometimes there’s been bonus points for starting at the junction.   

Overall I think more often than not it is included in the challenge but there have been times its been excluded to encourage use of the lesser travelled stretches. 

 

A year when I moored at Fazeley and was hoping to start from the junction, the stretch from there to salford junction was not on the route planner. The rules tend to get tweeked each year.

Some years it does and some years it does not.  When it does it is an “in only” route, ie in towards Birmingham from Fazeley only.  Given Lauries cruising schedule it’s a month cruise from there to Birmingham though, so it would not work!

I think Laurie should campaign for Fazeley Mill as the end point for next year's challenge, if he doesn't mind going that far. :D
