Overgrown Dry Dock entrance cleared 9 Oct 2015 Relief at last for the Dry Dock entrance above Bottom Lock Braunston

A group of Volunteers from the Braunston Canal Society set about clearing the overgrown approach to the dry dock. The tree growth had extended out into the canal by some 7 metres and was causing boats to take avoiding action when exiting the lock to go upstream as well as making it difficult for boats to enter and leave the dry dock.

The photos show how much was achevied by the volunteers in just 4 hours.

Our thanks go to the Canal & River Trust and in particular Alex Goode for lending us the work boat and to Jonathon of Union Canal Carriers for disposing of the cuttings.
