Boater accidentally drains stretch of Grand Union Canal
The Canal River Trust has been alerted after ‘boater error’ led to a strange sight yesterday.
The Cooks Wharf area of the Grand Union Canal, which sits just outside Cheddington on the way to Marsworth, drained away after a boater left a lock gate paddle open.
The gates control the flow of water in the lock.
The Canal River Trust is now working to solve the problem.
A spokesperson said: “We are currently trying to raise the water levels and get things back to normal but due to limited water at this time of year, it is taking longer than expected.”
