Another dry day with good sunny intervals. The wooden barriers at the end of the Woodland Walk were completed, pending painting later in the year when the timber has dried out. A useful job! The overgrown edges of the Woodland Walk path were sided out for some distance. Some of the snowdrops planted here last year are starting to bloom so hopefully they will naturalise year on year. Then everyone turned their attention to Lock 16, since CRT had commenced work on inspecting and repairing the lock flight. The lock edges were sided out, the ramped sides weeded and cleared back and the area outside Lock 16 cottage swept clean. All in all a great improvement.
