Aiming for a weed-free W&B Canal at Wootton Bassett





Confronted with dense grass-like floating weed they are having to look for new ways to clear the dense vegetation – the plan is to get a mini-digger to lift out the weed clumps – but for the moment the work has come to a standstill because a foul smelling film has formed on the surface of the water.  Wessex Water has advised that it could be a health risk so the work has now stopped until it clears.



If you want to help with the project or to get more information about the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust go to their website at: www.wbct.org.uk
