Dydd Gwyl Dewi DDa pawb! (Happy Saint Dai's Day everyone!)
While cycling the towpath, towards Gas Street Basin, I approached NB The Crusty Crow, Roy shouted to me, "wanna buy an engine mate?"
I replied "As it happens I do, but not another BMC 1.8! But I could be interested in some bits"
Roy, it's owner, is a fellow member of the Canalworld forum.

Roy told me that the Craven Arms had re-opened after a re-fit and takeover by the Black Country Brewery. It was a great tip, it's a lovely pub in Upper Gough Street and the friendly hosts Chris & Sharon keep 8 ales and a few ciders, well worth a visit and an easy 5 minute walk from the canal.
