Salthouse Dock at Night
Victor: On the Coventry
Sunday, 21 September 2014 20:49

SO IT was on to the Coventry Canal, but before actually making it, we had to brave Sutton Stop Lock, as once again maintenance—well, the lack of it—raises its ugly head, in the shape of a piece of wood!

CaRT gives false evidence
Sunday, 21 September 2014 16:09

THE Canal & River Trust (CaRT) have admitted to providing false evidence to a court in the Tony Dunkley case (CaRT's cruising climbdown), writes Allan Richards. The admission follows a request for information made by Mr Dunkley almost a month ago.

Boaters all-important

IT WAS when we realised we were moored for the night just by King's Orchard Marina on the Coventry Canal, that we thought an investigation would be appropriate.

AND SO to Foxton and its famous locks, and an astounding difference—every lock gate swung with a gentle touch and stayed either open or shut; the paddles were a joy to operate and very little leakage.

THE Canal & River Trust (CaRT) Waterways Partnerships are draining CaRT resources and will fail to become self sufficient by the end of 2014 as promised, writes Allan Richards.

SO IT was away from the now recommended Leicester pontoon and along the Leicester 'mile' of mooring rings and bollards, early morning, with not a single boat in sight, meaning its vandal reputation had remained, which is a pity with all that the city has to offer.

CaRT's cruising climbdown

THE Canal & River Trust (CaRT) has climbed down regarding its landmark ‘cruising case' against boater, Tony Dunkley (What does cruising mean?), writes Allan Richards.

Victor—What a difference!
Thursday, 11 September 2014 17:00

NO MORE narrowboatworld until the week beginning the 22nd September, we’ve gone cruising.

SO IT looks like we are going to get 'Little Hitlers' strutting their stuff up and down the towpaths at the visitor moorings, making life even more fraught for boaters.

THE new Pubic Space Protection Order that comes into force on the 2nd October could spell the end for Canal & River Trust 'Chuggers'.
