BOATERS’ NOTES

Canal Boat - - The Cruise Guide -

Limit of nav­i­ga­tion: the first sec­tion of the aban­doned north­ern reaches which ran from Snare­stone to Moira has now been re­stored and re­opened. The new limit of nav­i­ga­tion is just be­yond the new Bridge 62, and fur­ther sec­tions are ex­pected to re­open in the com­ing years. How­ever at present the wind­ing hole at the new tem­po­rary ter­mi­nus is only large enough for boats up to about 50ft to turn; longer craft must turn at the old nav­i­ga­ble limit at Snare­stone.

Snare­stone Tun­nel: the roof dips down in­side the tun­nel to­ward the north­ern end re­strict­ing head­room, so make sure that chim­neys etc are re­moved be­fore en­ter­ing. Don’t at­tempt to pass other craft in­side the tun­nel.
