Royalls Boatyard: MERRY CHRISTMAS

Happy Christmas to everyone who holidayed with us this year and those customers who have booked up for next year. There is fairly limited availability for 2016 so if you are interested in spending your holiday on the “boootiful” Norfolk Broads with us please do not hesitate to give us a telephone call and we will try to squeeze you in somewhere, we have the phone put through to us most of the time including the evenings and if we hear it, we will pick it up. A big thank you for all the Christmas cards that we have received, an enormous amount, far too many for us to mention everyone individually, however a special mention in dispatches for the Wheeler family and Sue and Pete, much appreciated.

Well, since I last wrote we have been carrying on in much the same manner, Paul is working all out on changing some of the old GRP basins with new porcelain ones (SATIN, AMBASSADOR, DIAMOND) along with new taps and some work tops and shortly he will be upgrading some of the older toilets. We have ordered a new stainless steel galley sink and drainer for AMBASSADOR along with a work top similar to the one that we fitted in the STUART last year. In the meantime “Dynamo” Dave keeps on polishing and we keep launching and pulling out the cruisers as soon as the ones in the shed have been overhauled, on Monday DIAMOND slid down the ways into the water and we next pulled out the last of the big old buses, the AMBASSADOR, so once she is completed after the Christmas break it should be hopefully a lot easier, especially as some of the smaller boats like the SATIN and the VELVET’s seem to have escaped any major damage last year.

You will also notice that the new roundels have been left off the bows thank goodness as they looked awful once they had been rubbed up against something and torn, you might remember that we tried to do away with the bluebirds that preceded them a while ago but quite quickly had to relent and stick them on again. The remaining boats without the new lino will be visited by Uncle Pete once the weather warms up a bit, the lino tiles were OK but this modern hard wearing lino looks far superior. In amongst all this Sara and I managed a few more days away up North and this time ventured onto the territory of the Cheshire 4 visiting Wild Boar Clough tucked away down amongst some quite rugged terrain off the bleak Buxton road.

Well, if you have a bit of time why not join us for what turned out to be a very interesting if tiring walk. Driving down to park by the vertical rock face just across the bridge we pass a rather large and elegant residence which in fact it turns out was the offices for what must have been quite a big water mill or factory that produced I believe carpets although there is absolutely no sign of it at all now as the buildings were torn down in the late 1950’s, however we presume that the little cottages seen on a bluff overlooking the road that we amble along and those on the opposite side to some small allotments by the bubbling stream that presumably drove the wheel were where the mill workers were housed. We had started this walk once before, following the suggested route up onto the hill above and down to Clough Farm where a big ferocious dog on a chain put us right off passing through the yard, we cannot still understand why someone did not put up a little diversion sign as there is a simple route round the farm instead of passing directly through the yard but by then we were somewhat choked off and nearly caused what we call a ‘marriage breaker!

and so returned to the car in a huff. Anyway the route we now take is actually very pleasant along the road passing the mill cottages and crossing the river, at the farm we made sure to go through the little car park and crossing the river once again pass through a gate onto an old packhorse route signposted to the Cat and Fiddle. All these old pack horse tracks tend to be quite stony unless they are laid out with what I presume are limestone paving slabs but at least it was dry and very picturesque ascending alongside the clough, its banks clustered with pine trees.

Higher up though where the path skirted round passed a medium sized waterfall we climbed up a stream bed that in places caused us to go “bouldering”, with the recent overnight rain fall all the smallest gullies were running with water and it was quite wet hauling ourselves up here, and rugged too, but funnily enough no one else seemed to be about. As we progressed up toward the moor it grew progressively windy and by the time we emerged to cross over the brow to meet our next pack horse track it was blowing really rather strongly, I found it most unpleasant when my fringe kept getting in my eyes, Oh, I think that might have actually been Sara but anyway we progressed easily down this track toward the Buxton road that we had driven on earlier and where we had to risk our lives by rushing between the on coming juggernauts and hurdle a low crash barrier on the other side of the road by a steeply sided valley up which the wind was literally howling. Below us, but standing as high as our level stood a tapering brick chimney, part of a small coal mine the remains of the pit head and buildings we were to see once we descended the narrow path to the stream at the valley bottom.

We walked alongside the stream on a very good track noticing as we did so that the water as it cascaded looked jet black, perhaps this was caused by the thick layer of peat that we had seen up on the moor. Below a farm though we ran into a little difficulty in that recently, very recently by all the evidence laying about there had been cattle in the field and their hooves had churned the path into a complete mire. We tried rather unsuccessfully to make our way through it and Sara decided that her best plan of action was to keep to the barbed wire fence, eventually though she had to give in as the ground grew progressively muddier and decided to cross to the other side of the path.

However an elastic strap on the back of her rucksack got hooked on a barb and the first I knew was Sara calling out that she was stuck, I thought at first she meant her boots were stuck because she was sinking fairly rapidly into the cows mess but eventually I got the message and released the elastic from the barb allowing Sara to suck her boots out of the grasp of the evil smelling muck leaving a rather abhorrent tide mark on each of her legs well above each ankle. Luckily though her feet remained quite dry though subsequent to this episode I tried to remain up wind of her. Having escaped the churned up field we stopped for lunch in a little tumble down stone hut perched on the side of the gully above the stream and out of the wind, being very hungry by now we really enjoyed our food and having rested proceeded the short distance to the pack horse bridge bordering three shires, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, and Cheshire, we assume the Cheshire 4’s forbears new all about this spot as all sorts of gambling and diabolical activities were carried on here because if the police from one force came who had no authority in another county, the reprobates simply crossed the boundary.

What a picturesque spot, after a poke about and a paddle amongst the rapids we chugged along yet another stony path that bent round a hill to cross a small road before dropping down rather a boggy moor to recross the Buxton road again. By now we were flagging a bit and found the soggy peat a bit of a trial, however at the bottom we carefully negotiated a short rocky access track back out onto the lane past all the nice houses down toward Wild Boar Clough where we collapsed at the car. Naturally the return journey was a bit chilly as we had to keep the car windows open until such time as Sara had a chance to wash her legs.

A few days later from having returned from up North we took Sara’s mother to see the spectacular Christmas show put on at Thursford. You have to be quick to get a seat for the show as there are coaches travelling from all over Britain and possibly further afield to it so Sara had actually booked them LAST boxing day, more or less a year in advance. If you have not met Sara’s mother she is the old bird seen sometimes skulking around the yard clutching onto a bag of woollen dog hats that she has knitted for Sara’s dog charity, in actual fact they have both been knitting red and white Santa dog hats full out and shipping them all across the world.

Back at Thursford there are not too many cars in the car park when we arrive but the coaches packed full of old people are rolling in like “one o’clock” with some very distant destinations sign written on them. I think they said that there is about a thousand people in each audience and apart from two young girls Sara and I seem to have been the youngest and that I can assure you is not saying much. The average age in all honesty must have been not a little short of about ninety.

I am still not quite sure what the show had to do with Christmas, yes the decorations were outstanding and there were one or two Christmas carols sung by the cast but essentially it was a cross between a school nativity and a variety performance but on I should think a dose of treble steroids or more, it was manic but really extremely good and entertaining and the large cast both singers and musicians absolutely first class. A couple of numbers in, and there was lord knows how many scantily clad birds in the old fashioned chorus line, you know, kicking up their legs and carrying on and there’s all these old boys sitting in the audience rolling their eyes about a bit until that is the girls spun round and lifted their tails, well, we thought at least half the old codgers were going to conk out, I shouldn’t think most of them had seen anything like that since the time the blitz was on! One other thing about the show was that for an awful lot of it the singers were off the stage down amongst the aisles, the singing and the music were terrifically good, anyway they were doing a number from Mary Poppins, the chimney sweep song ‘Step in Time’and all the girl dancers were dressed up as chimney sweeps and one of them was twirling her chimney sweeping brush (presumably unused) right near Sara and I thought if that brush gets caught up in Sara’s hair someone’s for it but instead the dancer leaned forward touching Sara on the arm and asked in a cockney accent, “All right guvnor?” which we thought was highly amusing.

If you are in Norfolk, at Christmas time we cannot recommend this three hour extravaganza as Sara calls it, highly enough, absolutely marvellous. We had a nice walk at the weekend from Holkham Hall to Wells next to Sea. Well owd bewties, I reckon that’s about all for now, the river looked very nice tonight as I was rowing home in my gun punt WIGEON with all the Christmas lights reflected on the dark water, though it is a bit blustery this evening.

We look forward very much to seeing you all again when we resume boat letting in March and hope for an excellent summer, have a super Christmas.
