Repairs

I am of course delighted that CRT can afford to spend £25,000 on repairing a 61 metre section of collapsed bank on a scarcely-used section of waterway, through 'the installation of Larsen piles with reinforcing mesh installed into the concrete behind the piles' and a 'new concrete capping beam', and still find a little small change for a massive blue sign to tell us about it.

The cost is clearly incurred not only by the spanking new workboats engaged on the repairs,
but also the man in the hut guarding them.

I wish Marple had re-opened on time though.
