    Sewage

    The stuff in the Burscough / Parbold area sinks below the water when the sun goes off it.

    Lost Camera, Nafford Lock, River Avon

    But how many cameras support it (my Nikon does) and how many finders would know how to access it ?

    Sewage

    I think it's some form of vegetation, but I'm not prepared to scoop a handful up to find out for sure !!!

    Sewage

    There's more "sewage" between the Ring O' Bells pub and the Rufford Branch junction than anywhere else, but it's everywhere! Not particularly good pics I'm afraid but the DSLR was at home.

    Sewage

    That stuff was green when it first appeared around Appley Lock a couple of weeks ago. How anyone can mistake it for sewage is beyond me (no smell, no loo paper, etc).

    Sewage

    According to my profile I am !

    Sewage

    Where EXACTLY is this gunge supposed to be ??? Didn't see anything matching your description between Parbold and Great Score today, either going or coming back. "Not so much traffic going into the Pool." I wouldn't have thought there would be any, unless the boats are on wheels! Yes, and don't blame us for it. We have our own pump-out facility at our mooring.

    Sewage

    The canal is open for a further 13.2 miles beyond Burscough in the Liverpool direction.

    We went from Parbold to the Crooke Hall Inn and back yesterday. In seven and a half hours, we only saw 8 boats on the move. Hardly 100's !!!

    Water Restrictions on the L&L Already

    Bit of a joke as water is gushing over two over-flows between the Crooke Hall Inn and Dean Locks today. ( The 'lost' water is flowing into the River Douglas.

    Leeds and Liverpool breached at Maghull

    Just to add to the problems at Melling, a stolen car was dumped in the canal overnight.

    Leeds and Liverpool breached at Maghull

    'Twas closed by a 'shear pin' problem earlier in the week. Not really surprising as it is regularly crossed by HGV's using it as a short-cut to/from Bursco' Industrial Estate.

    Leeds and Liverpool breached at Maghull

    Bridge 32 (Crabtree La / Slipway Pub) is out if action yet again. A 'wedges' problem this time.

    Should say "Spencer's Lane Bridge" which is near Melling.

    Leeds and Liverpool breached at Maghull

    The 'Rose of Parbold' sailed as usual today so the Parbold area is unaffected.
