Big Green Mud Moving Machine

Onward ever onward

The crew of the Cotswold Canals Trust ‘Dredger No.5’ have been working hard at their endeavours to get the ‘big green mud moving machine’ to Lodgemore Bridge and beyond.

Bob Hallam reports… “Today, we started to make seriously good progress through Chestnut Lane (formerly ‘Gasworks’) Bridge. But then…after a couple of tries, we hit something hard and shallow in the reeds.

“A couple more failed grabs and then… Voila! Some 18th Century brick work! It has been appropriately relocated!”
