ANYONE who uses the Middlewich Arm of the Shropshire Union Canal will be pleased to hear that the new bottom gates at Minshull Lock now hold water, and the new paddle gear is much easier to work, writes Linda Andrews.

There are also two new lock ladders with decent toe-room, a lot of re-pointing of the brickwork within the lock chamber, and a new surface on the offside quadrant. Photograph by Linda Andrews.

There are those among us who love to knock CaRT, but on this occasion, a big 'Job well done' is in order.
