COLIN Ogden and the Owd Lanky Boaters team have been cutting away the dense ivy on Natland road bridge 182 on the in-filled section of the Lancaster Canal.

 Said Geoff Round, up from the Sankey Canal: “This is real hard work, but worth it to see the stone work again after all these years.” A group of interested walkers were full of praise for all the work being done.

 Meanwhile volunteers from Lancaster Canal Trust were hard at work clearing at Hincaster Tunnel, which had become densely overgrown.

 The general public responds well to these volunteers, who come from a very wide area.
