/ Union Icicle
Yes, it has touched down, in the late 1800s. There is a photograph in a book about the canal - it looks massive, certainly climbable. I believe they charged people to come and look at it from the bottom. I understand that it is caused by the sluice gate being forced open as the water starts to freeze and the ice expands, therefore letting more water escape.
Thanks for the info! Roll on the ice age...
surely some derring-do with a chisel late at night would speed things up...
