No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Undecided About These Things.

Thursday, 15th December, 2011.

These are the new safety handrails recently fitted to the bridge across middle lock Fradley, it seems strange that health and safety requires hand rails here but not for the steep and worn stone steps with the metal trip hazard in the bottom of the picture.

Safety rails are also being fitted to Keepers lock at Fradley which has a similar bridge.

The final version will hopefully look a bit better .

I hope it isn't the start of a slippery slope (so to speak). Unless we stamp this sort of thing out we'll suddenly wake up and find that all locks are railed off, and all canals in urban areas similarly "protected". That's before the elfin safety brigade drain and fill in the lot in case someone drowns.

Well the sign does mention a permanent solution so you may be right.
