The first craft through Bowbridge Lock
This morning and after a team meeting, we broke the ice (to get the gates open!) and our dredger team took their boats through Bowbridge Lock for the first time since restoration.
The water level was not up to the spill weir, so it was heavy going with a degree of weed dredging to clear a passage. The water levels did improve as time passed.
Another historic event in our restoration of the Cotswold Canals.
