The boats trapped on the Wardle lock side of the breach in the Middlewich Canal have been released.
Canal & River Trust pumped water up from the Trent & Mersey to refill this section of the pound and were able to get the boats out through the lock and on to the T&M.
One of those released was Jenny Wren, managed for her owners by Carefree Cruising. She was back at her base at Kings Lock on Friday afternoon.
Carefree Cruising commented, "C&RT were brilliant in getting the boats out so quickly."
The 58ft, semi-trad stern Jenny Wren is one of the boats booked in to be on view at the National Boat Share Show at Braunston Marina on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April. Admission and car parking for the Show are free.
