West Vale work-party with Research Councils UK

 28 March, 2012

West Vale hosted another successful mid-week work-party, this time with volunteers from Research Councils UK and Swindon Branch. Beforehand, they did not know what they were getting into, but the red-shirted band of got fully involved with cutting the last of the scrub from the canal bed between the Canalside Park and Tuckmill Brook and having two good bonfires, despite it being an unusually warm day!

 The team left tired, hot and rather dirty but well satisfied with their day's graft, as were we.

Although not having been dredged, this whole section of canal is now readily visible from the towpath; with just some brambles to clear when conditions allow.
