Description:

Rabone Lane Bridge, which is council owned, has developed serious faults with the potential of collapsing, so we have reluctantly closed the canal and towpath until we have further information on the risks. Our Engineers are liaising with the council Engineers to assess the situation and as soon as we know more, we will provide an update.

 

We apologies for any inconvenience this will cause.
