Please be advised that mooring will be limited between Devizes Town Bridge 141 and Cemetery Road Bridge 140 from 24th May – 30th June.

This is for the safety of our visitors whilst a new towpath is being constructed.  Localised signage will be put in place to show where it is safe to moor, but this will be temporarily restricted to approximately four boats. 

At times during the works, the whole length will need to be closed for mooring whilst certain operations are being carried out.  This is to ensure that boats are not damaged by stone chippings.

We appreciate your patience with these restrictions as we endeavour to make long term improvements to the area.

Description:

Works will be starting on site on Monday, 20th March 2017 to upgrade the towpath between Devizes Cemetery Road Bridge and Devizes Town Bridge and are currently scheduled to be completed by 5th May 2017.
