Land and Water hard at work today just upstream of Coed Gwilym bridge. A problem was a large obstruction at the bridge that hampered the passage of the full barges. In the first two photos, Gordon goes fishing and the expert driver tries unsuccessfully to drag it out. No matter, work continued. The plan is to dredge a channel just wide enough to allow the barges to be taken up to Trebanos Locks where the full width dredging will start in earnest.

The final pair of photos were taken a couple of days ago to show that dredging has to continue well into the late afternoon, long after the sun has set.
