It is pretty grotty. Which way are you going? The last few locks and pounds down to Limehouse have gin-clear water.

So its as it always has been then.

dont get fooled its been a dump since it was a dump. As i recall the night soil barges used to dump from london and the tradition has been steadfastly continued.

Its always like that, and in late Spring gets worse when everything on the bottom rises to the top for a week or two.

Should we really blame CRT when it's the local residents who treat the canal as a rubbish dump?  

 

But... but... the canal is the best bit of Southall!!

 

OTOH the further north you go, the better the GU gets. 

 

(Up to a point!)

Back in the  early 70's the Hanwell thicket was my home & many of my retired boatmen worked for waterways & occupied most of the cottages there.

 The cottages & gardens  where looked after & kept clean & Tidy .

The Canal even then was a bit of a dumping ground for animals & rubbish not to mention suicide victims but was soon cleared or reported by the ex boatman in the cottage nearest to the problem.

A lot has to be said for the amount of cottages & land  that had now been sold off to the private sector & C.R.T.  seem to turn a blind eye or be too late with replys  .I have several times over the years been invited to litter picks & clean ups in the area for most of them to not happen due to lack of help or permission e.c.t.

So until C.R.T. stop turning a blind eye i can not see the situation changing
