    Just read very recently of the passing of Brian J. Goggin, RIP. For lovers of our inland waterways, this is a sad loss as Brian was a wealth of information. I did not know him personally but he always replied to heritage queries, however trivial, relating to our vast waterway systems. His website,, is a pleasure to read. Let's hope that his legacy will be the taking up of his mantle by other sagely erudite persons to continue his wonderful site.


  • Sad to hear, wealth of information on his website, hope it is preserved. I see he was preparing a book to be released posthumously so I'm sure that will be a good read or will hopefully contain a lot of the writing from his website.
