Crick Boat Show 2015

Crick Boat Show
We've been at Crick today, trying to set up our stand but problems with the allocated space not being as agreed means we haven't been able to finish. We'll have to be there early tomorrow morning to complete setting up.

The photo show a previous year and I'm sure our stand will look just like that by the time the show opens tomorrow.

We're looking forward to meeting lots of people over three days of the bank holiday weekend. Please come and say hello if you're vising the show - we're on the back row of the main marquee, next to the fire exit.

Grand Union Canal DVD
Another great set of canal DVDs are released from Waterway Routes covering the Grand Union Canal.

The journey from Brentford to Birmingham is covered in South and North DVDs.

The Grand Union Canal - South DVDs cover the route from Brentford to Leighton Buzzard including the Paddington, Slough, Wendover and Aylesbury Arms, the Regent's Canal and the Hertford Union Canal.

The Grand Union Canal - North DVDs cover the route from Leighton Buzzard to Birmingham including the Northampton and Saltisford Arms and the Digbeth Branch.
Grand Union Canal DVDs
These are 1 hour DVDs retailing at £12.95 for the Popular versions (rather like a television programme) and £7.95 for the Bowcam versions (a speeded up forward facing camera for a little fun).

There are also Combined versions at £19.90, with both Popular and Bowcam in one box saving £1 on the separate prices (and at least £1 postage).

Best of all there is a 10% discount if you purchase a pair of North and South Grand Union Canal DVDs.

They are in stock now, just waiting for you to order them, or any from our great range of canal DVDs.
Grand Union Canal Cruising Maps
These DVDs are supported by the Grand Union Canal Cruising Maps, available in Acrobat (pdf) and memory-Map (qct) formats.

The Grand Union Canal DVDs (and all the Waterway Routes DVDs) as well as lots of other great canal items will also be available from The Canal Shop Company (as soon as the postman delivers the box to Neil).
