Oh Dear! The Shroppie's closed at Shebdon because the embankment's sprung a leak! BW have drained the section and are rushing in 100 tons of puddle clay and say they'll have fixed it by next Wednesday!
That's OK for me. Starcross is safe at Norbury Junction and I wasn't thinking of going anywhere but it must be a worry for those with boats moored on the embankment and a pain for those hire boat companies whose customers are half-way round the "Four" Counties Ring and won't now be able to get back to base.
