A 'Dirty Dozen' assaulted the towpath between locks 1 and 3 on Saturday. The soil and grass were removed revealing the true width of the path at around 1 metre. In places this had been reduced to around 50% . By lunchtime this stretch had been completed along with painting the last three bollards below lock 2. Still keen to defy the weather the team continued towpath restoration through lock 2 and about half way to lock 3. A potential flower bed was also prepared at bridge 3. The rain came as they packed up and returned to base, mission accomplished. The following day, after the rain, the puddles clearly indicated where resurfacing will be required by the team at a later date.
