'Arklow Rebel' Barton Moss 5th August 2017
I decided to continue following 'Arklow Rebel' up the canal as it gave different opportunities in the section above Barton. Here she is seen having just cleared the infamous 'new' Barton lift bridge where the deck section collapsed spectacularly in 2016 closing the canal for several months. Two of the pillars needed to be repaired and have been covered in scaffolding until recently. The bridge deck lays on on the new road on the north bank awaiting installation.
