Saturday 23rd September - Canal House entrance to the Canal (what3words ///fork.loves.glue).
Canal House final clearance
Thanks to Pam, Jez, David and Chris Holmes, Liz & Margaret for recent work in clearing the reedmace in the area behind Canal House: there is now a continuous channel through all the reedmace in the stretch between the Twitchell and Gamston Bridge. We also discovered that swans love to eat the white root tips of the pulled reedmace left in the water, or on the bank.
The final photo is one Sue Mallender sent us. She found a freshwater muscle! Who knew they even existed in our canal?
