Last Wednesday we came down the arm from Marsworth to Circus Field, the new canal basin built for Aylesbury Canal Society. At lock 9 the water was leaking so fast that it was draining the pound above. I reported to C&RT that the off-side paddle appeared to have failed.
|Lock 9 with the paddles closed|
This time the canal was closed for a week whilst repairs were carried out.
For some time now there have been two leaks in the canal bank opposite the Circus Field basin. C&RT are aware of it. Water is leaving the canal under the towpath and draining into the stream alongside.
How serious does this have to be before remedial action is taken?
Answers on a postcard, please.
