GU To Close
I understand that British Waterways is about to announce the closure of the summit level of the Grand Union Canal due to water leakage.  Apparently the canal is losing 60 megalitres of water each week.  The reservoirs capacity is 2000 megalitres but they are only 36% full at present. If  you do the maths that means that the reservoirs would be completely dry in 12 weeks if the leakage is not stemmed.
No point in making plans for this year if we cannot get out of the Aylesbury Arm.
