Working Party

In November 2008, our Working Party undertook a number of tasks, including removing tree stumps from the towpath edge on the Fairbottom Branch, re-laying edging stones and clearing vegetation from around the locks.

There were a couple of places on the Fairbottom Branch where edging stones had slipped into the water.

That's all the stones fished out - now we've got to see about getting them into place!

With ropes and levers and lots of helpers, the heavy stones are carefully positioned.

With the stones in place the gaps have to be filled with small stones and packed firmly.

The edging stones firmly re-laid and the towpath edge is as good as new!
