Our Wapping Wildlife Rangers are delighted to report that the pump for the canal is being fixed. Our Eastern Patrol Team were out on, er, patrol this afternoon when they came upon a hive of activity in Wapping Woods just behind 21 Wapping Lane.
Our Rangers sneaked a peek into the entrance of the well and were a little disappointed to only see some big pipes. The big pipes eventually lead to the pump 70 metres underground which draws water from the river that runs under the woods and presumably Wapping itself.
The Rangers thanked the gentlemen working on the pump and then
melted back into the undergrowth walked down Wapping Lane.
Let’s hope the water levels on the canal are back to normal soon.
