  7. Afaik the leak on 35/36 pound is through/under the cill of 35. For many years it was presumed it was going into the stream under the canal, then I heard they had used tracer dye to find it going past the cill. In the days when a lengthsman would have just got on with the job, a layer of puddling clay in the canal bed and cill stonework might have ameliorated it. How about laminating all the pages of the risk assessment and laying them on the canal bed to fix the leak. That would fix it.

  9. There's a gate feed in the tailgate of 36, they also fitted a controlled bywash on 36, so there is hope. At one time there were combination padlocks on the tail of 36, those of us who moored there had the number, so could always let water down if needed.
  10. Summit pound today.
