Middlewich breach repaired in five weeks

Alas, do not get too exited, as it is certainly not the current one.

Pam Picket tells that a breach on the Middlewich in 1958, twice the size of the current breach, was repaired within five weeks!

Soil was supplied by boat. Making a real meal of this latest breach methinks, five years hard-up as I predicted. Whatever happened to the eight and a quarter million pound investment in working boats by British Waterways not long before the transfer to CaRT.

Would 'in the cart' be applicable to boaters today?!
