Bruce from Sanity commented about a car in the canal at Fradley junction. The story has appeared on the local papers web site. The driver must have felt like a real spanner, good job it was in late November on a wet Sunday rather than the middle of August. for sure the audience would have been a lot bigger.
The pictures give a good impression of the depth of the canal at the junction. There was no stoppage notice so I presume it was navigable
Fradley had a sunken boat last year about the same time - I only remember as the boat yard were supposed to be working on Waterlily's blacking and got delayed by having to re float a boat in Keepers lock.
