Tony also said, "After BW smashed up his rink in Devizes, Dick was not thwarted and he would skate out on the canal from Devizes to the Bridge Inn at Horton where he would have a chat and glass of lemonade — and then skate back to town."
Tony has also put a name to the crane driver of the crane that went into the canal. He was Howard Hewitt who was the owner of Devizes Cranes — but Tony isn't sure of the date of the freeze. So more information and/ or pictures would be welcome.
