Beating a path 22 Jan 2020 Towpath cleared between locks 1 to 3

After the effort put into clearing the towpaths last year BCS were determined not to let them deteriorate again.  The Thursday 9th task party cleared the towpath from lock 1 to lock 3 including the horse ramp.  Building on last years achievement the efforts of all 11 volunteers helped achieve the task in good time. 
All the rain over the past few months has highlighted sections of towpath liable to flooding from field run-off. These have been noted by BCS for possible future drainage projects. It has been rewarding to see last years raised towpath extension project has been successful in eliminating the flooding there.
