The stoppage was between Minworth Middle Lock and Forge Lane Bridge (just above Bottom Lock). The whole section had to be drained so that work could be done on restoring the sidewall and towpath which had been collapsing for some time.
Looking east from Forge Lane Bridge - only a slight lowering of the level behind the stop-planks (the planks are at the bridge'ole).
On the west side of the bridge, the section is drained.
At the other end of the drained section, looking east from Middle Lock (below Hanson's Bridge) - the section being worked on is just at the bend.
