The most leaking lock—4

Published: Wednesday, 06 October 2021

BARTON Turns lock on the Trent & Mersey is another whose cill is ready to bust.

BartonTurn4Chris Hall tells us that water is pouring out from underneath the cill, just a matter of time before the cill fails completely!

In this condition

This lock was in this condition when we came through on our early September cruise, and had the similar feeling about it, but had encounted so many with leaking cills that alas, it was no longer a worthy news item for Victor!

But by all means keep the photographs coming, and then possibly someone of some importance may realise the condition the waterways are being allowed to get into.
