Piss up, brewery

These words will be contained in a description of almost any work carried out by British Waterways.

I walked 3 miles home tonight, bit chilly out. I should have cycled home but I had a puncture, another one.

Everyone I know who cycles, so most boaters, in the Limpley Stoke valley has had multiple punctures recently.

Why?

Because the organisation that can’t even think of a name for itself, had the hedgerow flailed and didn’t clear up the trimmings leaving the path strewn with thorns.

They have been notified. They have done nothing. Complaints have been made about this, there has been no reply yet because BW always take as long as they can to respond.

    “Everyone I know who cycles, so most boaters, in the Limpley Stoke valley has had multiple punctures recently.” I didn’t and cycled from Bristol to Bradford on Avon the other week as it seemed much nicer than just getting the train back Bristol to London… did it last year on a 63ft long narrowboat so thought I would try from the towpath. Guess what – yes a puncture just before Dundas…now i understand why! Still had to stop there to buy some quinces from the fruit stall.
