Glad to see that the locks are being looked after, spent a happy hol once on the canal and went thru all the locks at Wigan ( a lot of them too)

why dont they clear out all the rubbish in the canal while there's no water in?????

jam, I hate rubbish too but who are 'they'?
The men repairing the lock gates aren't going to do it.
The street cleaners have their work cut out as it is.
I've discovered that the best way too clear up litter is to pick it up myself.

"They" are an invisible group of people that no ever sees.
To do something like this job would probably have to be done by the "paid" people, liability in the case of an accident would be a nightmare.
