The Armada has gathered

Access through Wallbridge Lower Lock will not now happen until Monday as the chamber is still blocked with scaffold etc.  Bowbridge Lock is now full, but with not quite enough flow to to take the level over the spill weir.

What awaits is the section of pound below Stantons Bridge to Bobridge Lock, plus a small area up near Griffin's Mill Lock which cannot be reached with the diggers.  So plenty for Augustus to get on with.

The long reach diggers have now almost completed their work above the bridge.  The dredging spoils will be emptied from the barges along side this section
