Fendering will have no effect

INTERESTING dialogue concerning this issue, [stop planks at King's Orchard Marina] writes Kevin McNiff.

Fendering the wall would have no effect on what a stem post will do to the bridge brickwork! It’s a shame that ABC Leisure have become complacent as they’ve grown. Back in the day, everyone at Alvechurch was boat and canal orientated and its fleet was always well turned out.

Two sets of planks

 If stop planks don’t work, there’s now two sets at Stanthorne Lock following the Middlewich breach, labelled Top and Bottom, so that’s strange!

 Obvious answer is construct all marina entrances to the 'Dunchurch Pools standard', because even on a narrow canal you can get a wide beam in!
