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.
