The notices explaining the restrictions are complex, more so if English is not your first language (as is the case with a number of hirers). I don't understand why maps have not been used to show the restrictions with a 'You are here' arrow. I'll update this post with links to the CRT website with their updates on the situation at Stoke Bruerne but please bear in mind that these rules also apply to the other sites where the new restrictions have been implemented; Foxton, Thrupp (Oxford) and the like.

Just to reiterate - I am not against restricting the mooring times provided it is done in conjunction with the boaters (how many of those CRT people implementing the restrictions are boaters I wonder) and seeks to keep Continuous Cruisers as Continuous Cruisers (for that's what they sign up to) and not, using the recently applied euphemism, continuous moorers. There will be, of course, aways reasons why someone cannot move on, sickness (of person and boat), and all manner of genuine reasons which I think everyone accepts.
I walked up to the tunnel in the rain last night. There was a trading boat that had been there since the previous night - nothing wrong with that, other than they had left their chairs on the towpath, I very nearly walked into them and fell over - no not too much vino!
