Crane itself weighs 64 tons with a lift capable of 90 tons .
Brainstorming Ideas are being discussed this morning one idea is
Leaving it in situ & divert the canal into the adjoining field ,
big fear is that as the canal is up a 10 metre high embankment at that section any winching could bring the whole embankment canal and all into the lower field .
Another idea is to drain the section dig out the towpath & embankment and roll it into the lower field .

Commercial dive team would have it out in very little time, broco it up into manageable pieces and lift each section out with something significantly smaller.

Here's a 250T crane in a similar mess..

Not strictly speaking a "Yorkie" but I'm up at Bingley. What? You fancy trying to claim salvage?
