Wallbridge Lower Lock

Ian Moody reports:

Yesterday the SDC volunteers made good use of the barge Delilah as a floating bridge to transport materials to the offside of Wallbridge Lower Lock and also as a work platform to set the last few coping stones in place. About 5 tonnes of type 1 aggregate and topping was wheel-barrowed across to construct a path and a small team cast the concrete footings for the offside quadrant.

It was nice to see a decent amount of sunshine and it was doubly nice to hear all the positive comments from members of the public enjoying the recently opened towpath. Next week we will finish off the path and, weather permitting, construct the brick quadrant.
