Coronavirus and paddle sports
Read our latest guidance on paddle sports.
Our navigations are open for paddle sports.
In England please follow the government guidance for outdoor exercise.
In Wales please follow Welsh government guidance.
Please remember that you still need a valid licence to use any kind of unpowered craft on our network.
We ask you to maintain social distancing at all times, both on and off the water. Be mindful of others on the towpath and try to avoid areas with lots of moored boats, where people may be shielding or self-isolating. Give people space and use face coverings when appropriate.
