  • They are trying to fix it at moment as I write/ or part of it.........WHAT IT NEEDS IS TO BE DREDGED PROPERLY.. From one end' to the other . I can remember it being done often when I was younger many many years ago..I know every inch of this river and its a shame to see it like it is not being used.........
