Considering the time of year, a considerable amount of work was achieved at this month’s task group meeting, with the group continuing to benefit from the help of Northampton Arm volunteers. Not only were fallen branches and leaves removed from the Museum green, but also from the area around the Stables and the Forge, including weeding out the block work path there. Meanwhile, other volunteers had brushed out the dry lock and weeded the lock sides and steps. Attention then turned to the towpath and offside track below the road bridge, cutting back overhanging vegetation, dead Sumac trees and a very invasive creeper taking over the hedge adjacent to the car park of the Navigation PH (with their permission).
