The high & dry Mud Barge near Eastington.

The mud barge that had languished for some time on the south bank above Pike Lock has now been moved to the towpath side and fencing erected around it in preparation for some TLC.  Named Leviathan, it is just 90 years of age.

The volunteer run plan is to present it in a similar livery to our Warp & Weft barges which are now in service further up the canal.
