“The much anticipated dredging of the Taunton and Bridgwater Canal will commence from the 9th of September. It will take approximately 10 weeks.

The Plan is to start at the M5 bridge working their way back upstream towards Firepool Lock.

Dredging to approximately 1.2 m deep at the moment the average depth in this section is 700mm.

They will then drop back down to upper Maunsel lock. Dredging upstream again approximately 100 yards to the turning point.

Regards TAA”
