New lift bridge at Fiddlers Ferry 4th July 2016
In June 2016 a new lift bridge was installed at the western limit of Fiddlers Ferry marina. I believe this was funded by the local council and is pleasing to see. This would be vital if the canal is ever restored through to Spike Island. However the canal is dry for half a mile after this point and also blocked by pipeline a bit further on.
