Inside the July issue of Towpath Talk, publication of the review into future grant funding for the Canal & River Trust has been delayed until the autumn; and more than 23,000 people visited the 23rd Crick Boat Show, which took place at Crick Marina near Daventry in Northamptonshire across the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday weekend.
Regularly topping 100 pages, Towpath Talk features everything you need to know about boats, marinas, wildlife, conservation, heritage and superb days out.
Whether it’s news, reviews, reports or guides, we’ve got it covered right across the UK’s entire canal network, and there’s a substantial trader section for all your buying and selling needs. Towpath Talk is the best way to find out what’s going on in British waterways today.
This month in Towpath Talk, Jonathan Mosse continues his monthly look at freight developments on the inland waterways; the John Bunyan Community Boat, a completely volunteer-based group in Bedford, has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service; marine surveyor Ben Sutcliffe-Davies takes a timely look at summer safety on your boat; and Kevin Thomas gives some advice on sharing broad locks.
As usual, Towpath Talk is full of useful contacts, whether you are thinking of buying, hiring or selling a boat, or have one that needs upgrading or repairing. There are ideas for holidays, places to eat, a selection of book reviews, and what’s on! You can read the latest issue online, here.
