Following on from a blog earlier this month here is an update on the current state of the old lime trees bordering the Cut.
The tree contractors have finished, this is how the lime trees look now, quite a lot shorter but not many removed completely.
Near the Gate House wall, with the Grange on the left. The wires between the poles look less threatened by the trees.
The remains of some trees that had fallen earlier have not been removed. Note the water in the Cut, which started rising just as the tree contractors finished.
Here you can see how this tree has impacted on the brickwork of one of the old footbridges.
The Walk seems even narrower than it was before.
A new view of the Gate House from a gap in the lime trees bordering the Walk. The trees have been trimmed to prevent any more falling down, causing power cuts and blocked roads.
