The Canal Beneath Our Feet (8): Ready to Rubble Rumble: 9.4.17.

IMG_20170216_153642194All precautions to isolate water, gas, and electricity supplies to the redundant building  over the buried lock have now been taken and certificates to that effect issued.  The contractor who will demolish it has made a site visit. He will also remove all rubble produced by the work which is good news.

We have levelled off the steep bank of earth on the St Benedict’s side of the new wooden gates, thanks to Toby and his digger, so access will be available through the church car park once a hard surface is put on top of the soft sub-soil. The top soil itself is an excellent compost so it will be bagged and used in the church gardens.

Boundary wall between St Benedict's Church and the Buried CanalCo-operation between the City and County of Swansea, St Benedict’s RC Church, Sustrans, the Canal and River Trust and our society has been exemplary over the last three months in every aspect of the restoration at the old depot . Together we are stronger……and faster.  A new Sustrans standard tow path through the depot is that much closer.
