Cheshire Locks Working Party

We plan to paint Lock 46 of the Red Bull flight (which we prepared on a very cold January visit).

Parking will be available at CRT Red Bull offices, Congleton Road South, Church Lawton, Stoke-on-Trent ST7 3AP. Their car park entrance is diagonally opposite (i.e. other side of the road and other side of the canal  bridge) the Red Bull pub. Bus route is First No. 3 Hanley – Crewe to Red Bull crossroads. Train to Kidsgrove then along the canal towpath.  Toilet facilities will be available. 

Meet at 10 a.m. and, given good weather, we will work through to 3 p.m. If you are able to stay all day, please bring a packed lunch and drink. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or paint on and wear stout footwear. Have a waterproof in case of rain.

It would be very helpful if you could advise John Lawson that you are planning to attend so that all the tools, equipment, lifejackets etc. can be provided.

Ampere in Ireland
by
Malcolm Bridge

An illustrated talk on the Irish waterways based on a year spent there in all-electric narrowboat Ampère. Malcolm promises that this will be almost exclusively about the Irish waterways and not electric boating! [This is the final talk of our 2021-22 season.]
