BCN Moorings Guide
We first ventured into Birmingham back in 2005. Our research had us worried – was there anywhere in Birmingham that was safe to moor? From a post on the urw newsgroup Richard saw that an old guide existed compiled by Kevin Maslin. He kindly sent us a copy with a note:
“I’ve enclosed the relevant files as promised. The layout is not exactly as originally intended because I no longer have the font I used on my system, but be assured that all the info is present.
It was originally intended as a three-fold leaflet and should thus be printed back-to-back if you’d like to see it in its original form. The amendments list is simply three copies back-to-back.
When first produced, I announced the leaflet’s availability very widely and thus found myself posting out several hundred copies (I requested SAEs of course!).
Some of the info is out of date, and unfortunately I haven’t got time to do an updated version, so I’m afraid you may come across a few idiosyncracies on your travels when comparing my notes with the actual.”
We think the guide is excellent for BCN virgins like us, it needs to be read in conjunction with BW’s boaters guides, your Pearsons / Nicholsons and a helping of commonsense. Kevin Maslin has kindly allowed us to put up a copies of the files so here they are:
Note: In Summer 2011 the BCN Society issued an updated leaflet – we will add a link when we get a chance to scan it….
