Great Haywood Towpath Improvements

We've recently upgraded a section of towpath along the Trent & Mersey Canal near Great Haywood in Staffordshire.

Working in partnership with Staffordshire County Council and the National Trust we've improved the towpath along the Trent & Mersey Canal in Great Haywood.

The project involved resurfacing, and in some places widening the canal towpath, from Iron Bridge to the Trent Aqueduct in Great Haywood, a distance of 600 metres.

The project has created a level pothole free green route that local people can use to commute to work and school, enjoy a leisurely stroll, go for a run or simply to enjoy the canal.

The footpath connecting the canal to the Shugborough Estate has also be improved enabling visitors’ easy access to the National Trust site.

The work has been part funded by a grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) Rural Tourism Infrastructure programme.
