We are pleased to report a successful night's work, having surveyed the blocked by-weir and mechanically removed significant roots and vegetation.
The Trust is confident that performance of the weir will have been significantly improved and anticipate one further visit will be necessary to achieve a complete solution.
A new notice will issued when any further works are planned.
Please be aware that the canal will be closed overnight at this location to allow investigation of a blocked by-weir.
Depending upon our findings, we hope to be able to resolve the problem in the same visit and will confirm whether or not this has been achieved in an update on Friday 26th.
The canal will be open from 08:00 on Friday, whether or not we have completed a permanent solution.
