“A little bird told me!”

 

Restoration work as seen from the Air.  

 

At Crickheath , the WRG spent their July holidays working on restoring the historic Crickheath Tramway Wharf  where limestone from Porthywaen Quarry was loaded onto boats for transporting to the many lime kilns situated along the canal for converting into white lime for agricultural and other uses.

 

At Pryces Bridge Number 84, the SUCS Workgroup have stabilised the structure of the bridge by casting a reinforced concrete slab under the bridge. Work is also under way on re-profiling  the canal bed ready for installation of its new liner.

A long section of stonework alongside the towpath has also been completed by the SUCS.
