The Canal and River Trust seem to be slowly removing all the useful information provided by BWB and replacing it with links to external web sites.  So far we have lost the individual canal cruising guides, the interactive map and the facilities listings. Their web site now redirects you to other organisations for similar information. Its a sad day when an organisation has to rely on 3rd party information, some of it provided as a hobby, to document its own resources.
