Fortunately it was a real dream.

Thank you Andrew, it was a fine weekend enjoyed by all from 5 to 81.

Neil, I've not been up there for a couple of years, but I don't remember it being in operation when I went up. I've been looking forward for a long time to using sideponds myself.

Went on a cruise on the Panama Canal earlier this year (alas, not by Narrowboat). The Panama is being upgraded by the addition of 3 larger locks at either end. These are also going to utilise side ponds. The first time I had seen this. I will email the brochure showing how these are to be used. You may include them if you wish.

There's a working sidepond at Atherstone lock No6, just above Barry Hawkins's yard on the Coventry canal. I used it myself this summer, as did other people in the queue!
