see also 607/8. In the 40s/50s, the chutes were still there - at the foot of the near perpendicular cliffs - but rusty and derelict. I never saw them used or barges up that far. I wonder if that picturesque part of the canal in the woods by the Basin has been developed like it has around the junction with the main canal? When I visted there after many a year, in 2005, I felt like a Doctor Who arriving in a new universe as it was sooooo different to my youth.
