Picked up the Gloucester Cathedral virtual today after picking up a puzzle and a multi yesterday around the docks area. First visit to this area and enjoyed it very much.

Yep. Coates end just as I remember it from a few years back, except for the hole in the grill. Pretty sure it's trespass, but at the same time I read somewhere not too long ago that the rules on civil trespass had been relaxed somewhat.. I'll have to look in to that. Might explain why reviewers have been publishing caches of late of the sort I haven't been able to in the past?  ???

The Coates end, although there's a couple of falls to climb over, seems a lot shallower than I remember. The Sapperton end.. at one point you can see the canal bed cloud out. That's about ware I started to get wellie boot filled of slime. Notice that (Mr Glover that @tarmacjohn and I) went under with a while back, took the left hand wall. I tried the centre, then moved to the right wall. So I guess anyone going for the wading option to follow Mr Glover. I still will bring some floating option next time. I have a couple of large beach blow up rubber rings. I thought about laying back in doing a gentle backstroke to the fall  :)

Good to see you at Geolympixs :)

I see a video has been posted of Sapperton Canal, Coates find with Sapperton Canal, Danesway find in the second half of the video.

To me, the Coates end looks like trespass :o The gate is still there but has a hole on one side and there is still that boat you mention Gackt there as well.

Yep, seen that too. As I thought, and mentioned the other day when you found me :D tomorrow is not really going to work for me anyway, not during the daytime at least. Will give it another bash soon though  :)

Sapperton Canal, Danesway
Fancy having a go at this one on the 30th Oct (if FTF still for grabs) in my inflatable kayak (seats 2)  ::)

If FTF gone, then at a time the suits anyone else who would like to come  8)

Had a stab at the wading one this evening. Failed. Too tired. Unless doing next summer after a good dry month, I would suggest a floating craft, but not a deep bottomed one, unless you have a proper pair of waders so your boots don't get filled with mud like mine did.

Edit: Communication with the CO who said "pants and socks" did it for him. If you go for it, it's your choice. But not sure I would want to meet a few cachers I know emerging from the tunnel in my pants. Though, there was this one time....  ;)
