Montgomery Canal Restoration Work Party Report - December 2017

December 01 - 03

The weekend began with some unseasonal fun and games with water; the French drain sumps in Phase 1A were sealed off and the section was partially watered in preparation for being handed over to CRT for a full leakage test.

The main task for the weekend was a partial clearance of vegetation from the offside bank along Phase 2A, i.e. alongside the 'solar field'. This will allow the bank to be surveyed.

Excavation of the final newt lake continued at Redwith in anticipation of a newt licence application to cover the rest of the way to Crickheath Bridge.

Quote of the month: "We're plumbing the depths now - but go on, keep going."
