Cemex have a proposal to extend the quarry at Barrington; but the extension threatens the ‘Whole Way’. Someone’s been digging holes to take a look at what else might be there – before it all goes.

Frosty Canal Walk

A frosty, crunchy slip-sliding walk back from the nursey along the canal, starting at Northchurch cricket club

then down to bridge 139

and a slalom through the frozen puddles

and then a leap over the picnic bench at Bushes lock (number 50)

before the final leg to bridge 140a via the pool between locks 51 and 52 (Gas Lock 1 and Gas Lock 2) which is currently drained for repair

my cobwebs? gone ;-)
