Algae in the Canal


The beginning of the narrowboating year started well with a lot of sunshine, this however seemed to create the perfect conditions for a blue-green algae, which bloomed a little too much between Ash Lock and Greywell. We had a week in early May where it was not advised to use non-powered boats, such as kayaks and row boats on the canal. Dog walkers too had to restrain their faithful friends from diving into the water. Thankfully the Canal Authority have issued an all clear and everyone can again enjoy the canal.
