Allington swing bridge forms one of the short stops on the long pound. This is a footbridge/swing-bridge with only footpaths leading to and from and towpath and canal as a crossing. It is some way from the nearest road. I would safely say that any rubbish found on the non-towpath side of the bridge must have come from boaters. There was plenty of it.
Allington Swing Bridge
The towpath side was relatively clear of rubbish, but the non-towpath side yielded...
Lots of rubbish! The bin-liner was stuffed full, the overflow consisted of plastic panels, wheels and a loo cassette. This was all heaped aboard and dumped at All Cannings Bridge refuse disposal site 20 minutes along the canal. Am I getting to sound like Maffi?
Must buy some more bin-liners!
