There is a navigation hazard on the towpath side of the pound between Locks 38 & 39 due to several large displaced coping stones (dislodged during renovation works) below water level. These are situated next the repaired waterway wall awaiting recovery.

Works to recover and reset the copings will commence in the next phase of stoppages on the Tardebigge Flight after the 20th / 21st January open weekend.

Please approach with caution and listen to instructions from Canal and River Trust staff.

The Trust is working to get this matter resolved as quickly as possible and we thank our customers for their patience.

For assistance please phone Freephone Canals on 0800 4799947.
