I was heading down the Farmers Bridge flight with Brian and Brenda Ward on Colehurst, and we heard that the collar on the bottom of the Aston flight had failed. C&RT had been informed, and were “on the case”
By the time we got to Aston bottom lock, there was the C&RT team having a well deserved lunch break, and a new collar on the gate hinge. Total closure time from collar failure to replacement being fitted was less than the time it took us to get down the Aston flight. Pretty impressive – thank you!
