Stopping leaks

A boater sent us these photos of the work at between Whaddon and Hilperton to repair three holes in the bed of the canal. Many boats have been trapped. The stoppage is planned to end on 1st  or 2nd June. Water levels may fluctuate overnight on 29th May as BW test for watertightness between Bradford and Semington locks. In summer 2011 there was a breach between Whaddon and Hilperton Marsh.
