Ledsam Street Basin

A few more photos of the clerance job, and now.


The basin in February 1973 before clearing work began.


Another view of the same date from further in.


Rubbish was cleared down to water level before stop planks were inserted and the basin drained.


Stop planks in, and pumping out under way.


A view of the big pump running from across the cut.


The Brummagen Fly trip boat sliding past one March morning.


The basin has now been filled in and the entrance bricked up, with the land above being used as a car park.
