RIVER Canal Rescue was recently called out to help Jane Pollard, owner of nb About Time, after her boat got caught on the sill of Lock 9w on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.
The freak accident occurred as she was part way though leaving the lock, the boat became caught on the front sill, and unable to reverse, the bow quickly became stuck and within minutes the vessel was starting to take on water in the stern.

THE Romans were wise enough to pick Gloucester as a garrison to guard the River Severn; and as the river grew to become an important trade route, Elizabeth I granted Gloucester port status in 1580. But the River Severn played vicious games with vessels that struggled inland, with unpredictable sands and volatile tide levels.

The Tees Wheelyboats Club (a local charitable organisation) was set up in 2010 to give mobility impaired members of the public of any age, access to motorised boating. The Wheelyboat is suitable for all people who make use of a wheelchair and who may be accompanied by a carer, family or friends to ensure their individual enjoyment can be shared.
