Still no pump-out

Canal Boat - - Letters -

I wrote to Canal­Boat around four years ago about the Lee Nav­i­ga­tion and the lack of work­ing Canal & River Trust pump-outs, in par­tic­u­lar the one at Hazelmere.

CRT replied that its lo­cal team checks the fa­cil­i­ties once a week, it was not aware the pump-out was bro­ken and that it made a re­pair as soon as it was made aware of the sit­u­a­tion.

Mean­while… boaters should be aware that when we were again on the Lee Nav­i­ga­tion at the be­gin­ning of this sea­son, the Hazelmere pump-out still wasn’t work­ing and the Canal & River Trust fa­cil­i­ties at Waltham Town have com­pletely gone, due to the site be­ing re­de­vel­oped.

If you are plan­ning on trav­el­ling this route, we rec­om­mend pump­ing-out at Lime­house Basin be­fore ven­tur­ing north, or at the Lee Val­ley Boat Cen­tre at Brox­bourne. DEB­O­RAH MENDEL-LION, via email
