Re: Windpumps Or Windmills?

If the broads become a NP that’s the only way we’ll get new cell towers if they’re hidden away some where like in a windpump. Visiting parts of the broads is like going back to 1989 for signal :roll:

Re: Mutford Lock

It was £12 when we went through Miles, but the prices went up mid October to £13. The price includes free same day return. If you come back the next day you have to pay again.

Re: Online Chandlery Website WARNING.

IN my view, there’s a lot of Mickey Mouse chandlers online. The amount of times I’ve ordered stuff and I’ve had to wait ages, or items not turning up is a joke.
