As part of an inspection of the Roman walls, an area of particularly loose material has been identified above the rock face at the back of the towpath. As a precautionary measure it is therefore necessary to close the towpath.
We will update this notice next week once we have had the opportunity to fully understand the scale of the problem.
Third party contractors will be removing vegetation and carrying out a survey of the city walls above the towpath. Access will be by abseiling.
Towpath users may need to wait for clearance to pass the site. Banks staff and warning signs will be in place.
Boat traffic should not be affected.
