Wallbridge dredging

Contractors were on site today scraping silt from the canal bed in the pound between Upper and Lower locks.  Silt from Slad Brook tends to settle out in this section.  Also, the scaffold has bee erected along the old brewery wall in readiness for restoration work.

There  was also much activity down at the Canal Bookshop this morning, including the WRGies in a changeover phase, getting ready for a weeks work on Pike Lock.
