We enjoy it for the contrasts, its a antique waterway that probes englands normally hidden side of the fence if you like.The journey into Coventry or Birmingham is a revelation from slum like decay to glitzy developments. Many do however do a couple of hours and then have a pub break.

    I think the couple of hours and a pub brake is more appealing.

    Just returned from a lovely 130 mile round trip to Catterick,soundly beaten by the slimest of margins me JagWag took the trophy by 2 clays. Straight shot up the A1 and 32mpg as well.
    Tomorrows start,the old dears have cancelled,cant do with the upheaval of a new free bathroom so i now have a welcome extra couple of days to my self, Trip to argos for a wifi gadget for my jag droid appeals. Be on the Whatsapp to Blackpool for technical assistance i think.

    Hi Flatcap and thank you for posting a link to this film. I found it poignant, moving, very touching. I also found the technology and the results achieved to be fascinating.

    Someone early on in the film said that "most of us only remember what we see - so this site needs to be seen, to be remembered"

    Thanks again mate, I didn't have anyone onboard, but I can imagine how deceased & survivors families could feel, seeing this.

    Rest in Peace Boys.

    Cheers, Dave
