Oh dear!

Last week I mentioned that the CRT were spending £25,000 softening the banks of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal to make it easier for water voles to burrow into the bank.

This week I see that:-

The Leeds & Liverpool Canal in Rishton, Lancashire, has been hit by an emergency closure after a length of towpath collapsed.

It would seem to me odd that while at one place they were softening the bank and at another they were having to repair it because it was too soft.

Let’s hope CRT learn something this week. Hopefully how to save £25,000

Maybe CRT could use the soil from the bank softening to repair the towpath?
