The Fish Shall Have Their Pass

Work will probably commence next week; the tree overhanging the boat rack will be removed Monday, 04-June. For obvious safety reasons, access will need to be restricted (c. 09:00 to c. 14:00) using temporary fencing and such that passage will be neither possible to the lower island nor to the Clubhouse balcony. 

They will leave a 4-6ft stump and log the trunk/major branches. Anyone wishing to remove these logs for their own use is perfectly welcome to do so. I have agreed with the contractor that they will remove any remaining at the cessation of works.

The works platform (not required for the tree work) will arrive during next week. It will be raised on 4 legs to hold it in position and provide a stable working platform. Due to the scouring caused by the weir, the river depth at the point where they’d intended to position this vessel (well clear of the pontoon) is too great for the legs to reach the river bed. Consequently, it will have to be aligned along the bank at the entrance to Coulson’s Channel, requiring the removal of several rows of the pontoon. I will supervise this whilst the contractor will carry out the work.

To give some idea of the extent to which the platform - it’s the one moored just outside the entrance to the downstream pool at Thames Lock, not the one you see from the bridge, just past the flats adjoining the Wey - will intrude into the main channel, the bow will be aligned with the tree stump referred to above. The vessel is c.50ft long.

Graham Campbell, WSA
