Canal cleansing needed

One the wonders of Marple is its canal network. Indeed, as the local website claims, the walks along the canal towpaths are an important part of the delights that await visiting walkers and residents. The bad weather has however contributed to a massive deterioration in standards. The canal by Goyt Mill is still frozen over in parts, which can't help, but you do despair at the amount of litter, dog dirt and discarded stuff along the paths.
Just saying.

Agreed. The bad weather does have a huge impact though as it's far better in Summer. From Goyt Mill out towards the countryside it's pretty good in fairness, but between the Mill and Marple would be great if it was cleaned up a bit.
