Middlewich canal 'dredged'

Published: Monday, 19 March 2018

THE Middlewich Guardian would have us believe that the Middlewich Branch has been dredged by the aqueduct over the Wheelock which is why it is empty!

The reason for its statement is that a gun has been discovered in the silt after the breach emptied the length of waterway, the writer obviously mistaking the breach as dredging, Alan Tilbury reports.

CaRT on the scene

The publication states: Today, the Canal and River Trust have been on the scene and have had to dredge a long stretch of the canal through Middlewich'.

A hand gun has been retrieved.
