Balance beam sawn off

Published: Friday, 21 July 2017

THE reason for the stoppage on the Walsall Canal this time is  vandalism, that has closed the locks 1 to 8. .

Someone has wanted thick timber, so has sawn off a balance beam off one of the lock gates, Mike Todd tells us.

Impossible to operate

This of course makes it impossible to operated the lock on this narrow canal.

As yet, there is no intimation when this will be replaced, so the canal remained closed—as is stated—until further notice.
