Local Issues / Re: Land up for auction near Brick Bridge

and another section has also come up for auction on the other side of brickbridge road banking.

I suspect this would go for a similar price as the previous auction.Definitely not a mooring speculation as this section of land has the towpath adjacent.

As far as I'm aware the landowner would own the mooring rights to that side of the canal.

There are no riparian mooring rights alongside the canal. The owner would have to apply to the Canal and River Trust for what is commonly known as an 'End of Garden' Mooring with an annual rent (around £500 to £700 pa) being paid to C&RT which would be non transferable on sale of the land. Many a person has come unstuck by speculating on mooring rights hence the fact that it went for such a low price.

Knowing the weakness of this side of the canal it is highly likely that C&RT would refuse such a permit along with the fact that official C&RT 48 hour moorings are directly opposite.

To be honest if there was a chance of mooring rights being granted I would have had a little bit of a punt on this and of course would have expected the price to be a lot higher.

Got to my class early tonight so spent a happy 15 minutes in Asda car park watching cars do U turns at the end of Hollins Lane because they hadn't noticed the sign. To be fair it wasn't very clear. There is some really fun machinery working on the road. What is less fun is trying to find a safe crossing place as they haven't been well marked, so if you are a pedestrian be careful because event when you do find somewhere to try and cross the road has been scalped so you need to watch your footing.

On the plus side I was amazed how quickly they were working, no hanging about with that road crew!
