Once they finished doing the restoring, lets hope that they removed those old fashioned cobbles on the tow path and lay some tar mac
Sorry Mick I can't agree with you, cobble stones are part and parcel of the area, it wouldn't be the same with the coal tipper surrounded by Tarmac, I suspect you're thinking about 'people' who ride bikes along the canal towpath !!!!
I agree Roy only cobbles will do.....tarmac indeed !
Aye, setts rule! Cyclists don't like them because they turn their bike saddles into pile drivers.
If the cobbles weren't already there - it wouldn't be any use laying tarmac! What a wonderful structure underneath.
The cobble stones along that stretch are in a very bad way, there's pot holes and its very uneven not just for bikes but also for walkers.
The cobbles at Trenchefield mill are OK after being relayed a few years ago and so are the ones on and under the bridge, what they could do is just re do the cobbles on the hump at tippler and tar mac or block pave the rest,.
Theirs going to be a lot more people walking down there with fancy high heeled shoes on when the old ambulance station land gets developed
Mick you talk cobbler.
Copy and Paste -
Rubbish Mick, what woman interested in canals & such like would walk down there in high heeled shoes !!
Marina probably would Helen..
Well said, Helen.
Helen of Troy the new developments going to be a theater and restaurant so yes plenty of upper class high heeled women will be using tow path
Mick - theater or restaurant. Unlikely in 2021 and dependent on a vaccine.
First rule of holes - when in one, stop digging.
If the cobbles could stand clogs in the olden days, I'm sure they could stand the high heels of today. It would be just unfortunate for the wearers if they got the heels fast. They will just have to look where they're going and not wear stilettos!!
Veronica you people who dont get out much have no idea of what is going on out there.
The fancy boat tea room that was at Dean locks in Gathurst closed last year, because the well heeled Wigan women who do lunch got sick of stumbling down the canal bank to it
Quite right Veronica, high heeled females would have to watch what they were doing !
