LANARKSHIRE AVON, tree blockage..
Just a reminder that the lower Lanarkshire Avon is still almost completely blocked by trees at Chatelherault. They can't be moved until the spring at the earliest. Both the arches under the Duke's Bridge by Cadzow Castle are partially blocked by trees. There are probably ways through both sides at most levels. The danger is that the bridge is just after a bend in the river at a fast point, so you don't get much warning - please take care.
UPDATE: South Lanarkshire council has removed most of the tree with part funding from the Andy Jackson Fund for Access, before and after pics are here.
