Clearing weed growth on the canal

his work is done with permission from the Canal & River Trust, which also uses its own contractors to maintain a clear channel on the canal.  Without weed cutting and clearance the biodiversity of aquatic plants would decline and the canal would be unusable for boating and angling.
