This was done ages ago, but when I went through there again today I was reminded that BW did a good job here. Before BW fixed it it the towpath was so narrow it was rather hard to walk along. Now it looks great:
BW also fixed the towpath at Enslow opposite the Rock of Gibraltar pub which was in a similar state. When I first moored in Enslow several years ago there was space to put pins in, but with the speeding boats pins were ripped out and with every ripped out pin comes a bit of bank. Eventually the bank couldn’t take any more, and there was nothing to put the pin into. It was ridiculous. I was very pleased therefore when I noticed it had been repaired by BW.
When I was a newbie (on a previous boat), which largely I still am, and I moored in Enslow on the soft mud bank as it was then I used the standard size pins. It was Tad the mooring warden for the area that suggested I use longer pins, and he gave me some. I always use them now (although I left the pins Tad gave me on the previous boat) as they don’t rip out and don’t take the bank with them.
