Working Party

A very productive Working Party took place in January on the Fairbottom Branch, where trees are encroaching halfway across the canal from the far bank.

The team sets about cutting back the overhanging branches and cutting back the trees growing from the canal bed.

There were many thin branches that needed to be cut back before the trees in the canal bed could be tackled.

A woven fence was made from some of the branches cut down. Some of the branches used as stakes will take root so this will eventually become a living hedge.
