Re: Stalham Staithe To Be Closed Very Soon

Good that work is going to going on there. Potter Heigham has been a bit of a headache just recently for road users as coming from Gt Yarmouth the signs give you the impression that you have to go further on before turning left towards Potter. We did just that and ended up on a closed road. If comin...

Re: The Krays & The Broad's Canal

To discover the real history of the rivers and the lives that people had in the past is far more interesting than buzzing along in a bling boat drinking wine and looking at a few reeds and waiting for the next pub. So much has gone before and to the present days real loss.

Re: A Photo But What Does It Tell You?

May be if people saw exactly what is happening as you have pointed out , they would be a little bit more considerate and in less of a hurry to get from A to B. Thanks for the explanation.

Going to sound like 'Trigger' from Only Fools and Horses. What are you trying to say.

Re: Wet And Chilly On The Rivers

You can say that again. Darned awful. Did you notice that Windsor Castle was bathed in sunshine while the rest of the country is being soaked. Not going to improve until Saturday lot of use to anyone on holiday at the moment.

Re: Dissolution of the Monasteries

We have visited many many churches over the years all over the UK and found the same that faces have been scratched out. Such a shame.

Re: BUI On Boats?

Very wise words in the video. As you say when you are moored up ok but even then you have to have your wits about you. Slips and falls are easy to happen and spoil a holiday if you are not careful. Enjoy yourself and I am the first to open a bottle of wine but do be careful.
