Proof of the mess by STCC post!

I'm sure Mr. David Burrows didn't realise what he'd posted here. His photos show EXACTLY how dilapidated the canal embankment dam at Gasport is.

Just look at the dense undergrowth. You couldn't take one step into it.
There's fallen trees, broken branches hanging down, and more.

Yet Mr Burrows seems oblivious to it all.  He says "Biking riding out at Wruck road heading toward GASPORT. They had a tractor with a brush hog on it . Reaching out 20 to 30 feet from the trail. Cutting anything in its path."

And then - Peter Heuer says -
"That's tragic: what's the point of the canal if it's not a nice place to walk and bike? They might just as well fill it in."
The mind boggles!
