Canal Maintenance

     This section of the Leeds & Liverpool canal at Thackley is currently being dredged.  Many of the 2,200 miles of canal in the UK are over two hundred years old and need continual maintenance.  It's amazing how much junk people will throw in the canal, in the few minutes that I stood and watched this dredger, a bicycle frame, numerous bottles, assorted metal containers and various other items were recovered from the canal bed.
