Broken paddles

At the time we were at your Trent & Mersey Canal, but would have wanted the famous [Pontcysyllte] aqueduct instead but stopped when told of the broken paddles [Wardle Lock] so it was no go [and] told it was the fault of those who run the canals as they are always breaking and stopping people going, as we were the last time.

They will not stop us again as will not return ever.  A kind gentleman told about you and I should communicate and warn others that they not getting the canals they want.
