1. Steps leading down beneath the aqueduct. I took this photo as the light was fading fast, highlighting the atmospheric dampness of the mist hanging heavy in the air on the path below.
2. Below the aqueduct.
3. Water leaking from the canal bed and through the stone wall of the aqueduct.
4. A close-up of the leak.

This leak has been steadily getting worse in the four years since we first came became aware of it, so it's good to see the work finally being undertaken to hopefully seal the leak once and for all.

The leak is due to be repaired during February when this section will be de-watered to carry out a repair to reinstate the integrity of the canal bed above the aqueduct.
