Dredging Progress - Bowbridge

Today, dredging of the pound above Bowbridge Lock commenced after the new year break.  Augustus is steadily clearing a route through the reeds and is now almost half way towards Stantons Bridge, after which, a clear and deep channel exists.

For now, until the mud barge, waiting patiently in the distance, can be brought into use, the dredgings are being deposited along side in the canal.  It was a very grey and dull damp day.
