Restriction: Between Vernons Lane Bridge 22 and Tuttle Hill Bridge 23

Remember the other day I told you about a burnt out sunken boat. Well today I got an e-mail from British Waterways on the sunken boat.

Hi Jo

We are aware of this and there is a restriction posted on waterscape see below

Restriction: Between Vernons Lane Bridge 22 and Tuttle Hill Bridge 23

05 Jan 2012 until further notice

Associated Regional Office: Central Shires Waterways

Navigation is restricted due to a sunken craft which has drifted into the channel. The boat is approximately 300yards on the Coventry side of Bridge 23. Navigation is available towards the offside.

British Waterways are pursuing the owner to remove the craft as soon as possible and BW will continue to monitor the craft location to ensure navigation is maintained.

British Waterways apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

(Enquiries: 01827 252000)

The plastic orange buoys are there to warn traffic of the obstruction. We are in process of trying to get the owner of this boat to retrieve it but failing this BW will be recovering the boat sometime during March.

  1. Hi Jo,

    We went past the same burnt out boat back in October last year. It was still attached to the side as you can see if you go to http://nbfreespirit.blogspot.com/2011/10/another-burnt-boat.html

    Not brilliant news on Ian. Another operation is on the cards because the tumour has attached itself to one of his ribs. They are worried it might invade part of his liver and kidney so they want it removed as soon as possible. Bang goes our cruising for this year as he will have to undergo more Radiotherepy.

    Thanks for your thoughts and prayers,

    Loads of Love to you both. Xxxx

  2. Bugger, Bugger, Bugger on your news. I will keep you both in my thoughts and pray that everything goes well. Cruising can wait, there will be lots of time for that once Ian is fit again. Hugssssss xxxxxxx
