GLOUCES­TER & SHARP­NESS

Canal Boat - - News -

IT’S COM­MON TO find su­per­mar­ket trol­leys dumped in canals but a clean-up on the Glouces­ter & Sharp­ness Canal near Hemp­stead Bridge dis­cov­ered three cars. The ve­hi­cles, which are be­lieved to have been there for some years, were lifted out by the Canal & River Trust, to­gether with nu­mer­ous bikes, and plenty of the ubiq­ui­tous trol­leys.

“We knew there was likely to be one car down there, but it’s come as a sur­prise to us that there were an­other two wait­ing for us,” said Nick Wor­thing­ton, CRT water­way man­ager. “It’s likely the cars have been down there for a while, but the bikes, trol­leys and other junk are more re­cent, and it’s such a shame that peo­ple con­tinue to treat the canal as a dump­ing ground.”
