That's nice for him. I'm sure he'll enjoy sporting on his river once he has a bit of free time when all the customers stop visiting his sh1tty pub. £10 says the place is over-insured and suffers a horrible burning down accident in the next six months to be replaced by some houses, he obviously has no interest is running it as a pub.

To whom exactly does he pay this 1,000 a month anyway?

I don't believe that for a second tomrea and if you do you're a fool
He can't own the river and he certainly does not own the bank opposite. That is owned by Crispin Tebbutt who is paid by some body or other to allow access to it.
tomrea You are the W****r from the Anchor and I claim my £5

The W***** from the Anchor!!! Ha ha ha....
Funny, he's told others that he bought the navigation rights outright for £50k. The rights to navigation don't exist to sell though (the EA have confirmed this). The fishing rights for the river belong to the bank owners (Sutton Hall Estate and Boathouse Farm I think, the Anchor has about 30 yards, i.e the length of the pub property, and ON ONE SIDE only).
It's also unlikely a pub that has flooded so many times could be insurable for anything approaching affordable.

How about we arrange a mass picnic opposite his pub and then a mass swim up river?

I was speaking to Nick from Viva about doing just that a few weeks back. Dave from the Lansdown said he'd run a bar if there enough people interested. I think it's a brilliant idea personally and I do always enjoy a good picnic.

Just a note, as this part of the river is non tidal, then you have no rights to use the water in anyway, this is how i believe it works anyway :|

According to the EA you need the owners permission to use it. Therefore one would need the Tebbutt's permission and use the East side as one passes the Anchor.

OK Rebel, when's the picnic? I've always fancied a date with Hotlips, so if she'd just confirm she's going to be there, you can count me in too. I like the idea of bedding down. Do I have to bring my own tent?

Could make a weekend of it. Boathouse Farm rent out the field next to the Ouse for camping. Might even consider having a big barby and charging for the food. It's gotta be better than the Anchor's unhygenic and fatty offerings. ;-)
BTW. If canoing on the non-tidal English rivers needs the land owners permission doesn't that mean that Ouse bank-owners could stop the Anchor running their boats up the river if they wanted to?

I read lots of talk how about some action?
Shall we say this Saturday afternoon/evening then?
Bring tents, barbecues, sausages, canoes, rubber dinghies, swimming trunks but most of all your rights.
I'll talk to Crispin Tebbutt at Boathouse Farm about camping if there's enough of a posse.
What say you shipmates?
