It says that Fountains are struggling to cut the grass between Pigeon’s Lock and Banbury.

Health and Safety hazard

Not only is it a Heath and Safety hazard as sometimes voids appear between piling and towpath—good for ankle injury at best—but it is also impossible to clear up after your dog.

I’m still waiting.
