On the river bed
The men who collect the lugworms (bait) will only be there for a few more months. The new lock and flood control structures mean that the area where they sift the silt will be a canal (probably by the begnning of 2008).
They may be able to work the river bed behind the House Mill, but this depends on several other factors.
All the narrow boats are to be moved as well. British Waterways are responsible for the moorings, and we assume that theses boats will be relocated.
