IWA Warwickshire Branch continue to support the twice monthly work parties at Lapworth organised by CRT.
Over the last few months work has included towpath improvements, vegetation clearance and painting. A lot of undergrowth and debris has been removed to improve the moorings and the flow of water in the by-washes. Ivy has been removed from the stonework of buildings, fencing has been replaced especially around the fishing pool, a sign survey has been completed and 30 bird boxes have been erected around the junction.
There is now a programme of painting hand rails and lock gates underway to bring some uniformity to the locks. Work parties take place on the third Thursday and the third Saturday each month and anyone is welcome to join in.
