Weaver Woes continue

Published: Monday, 27 June 2022

IT WAS David Collins who told us about the many Weaver problems including Hunts Lock.

Telling Hunts Big Lock can't be used (silted) and Hunts Small Lock hard to operate.

Paddle failure

Hunts Small Lock is even harder to operate at the moment, impossible in fact, with CaRT informing that the lock is closed due to paddle failure, Keith Gudgin reports.

So of course no navigation, with the 'local team' out trying to locate replacement parts to enable a repair.

Should the 'ghost' ship Danny still be operating, it is not expected this will concern it, as it can't negotiate the small lock anyway.


Reopened this morning—Wednesday.
