March 2006 pictures


The 4th and 5th March saw the work to clear the widehole basin continue.  Several brave volunteers waded through years of mud, silt and slime to clear one of the widehole islands !  The area behind the Villa was also cleared, except for a few trees, and a small section of towpath is now open towards Newport.

Many thanks to MSF for their help shredding the cuttings !

Continued efforts on the Shresbury branch

Dirty work !

Some buried treasure ....
