until further notice
As a consequence of an embankment failure the navigation and towpath is closed until further notice.
Further updates and information to follow once our engineers have had the opportunity to fully assess the situation.
19/03/18 - Update
Engineers and Customer Operations Teams have spent the last few days assessing the breach and prioritising works to be carried out including undertaking a fish rescue and tree assessment
The next steps include putting a portadam in place this week, downstream of the breach which will then enable water to be pumped from the Trent & Mersey Canal into the Middlewich Branch allowing boats in the affected section to be in water
The navigation will still be closed to other boats as passage cannot be gained through Stanthorne Lock

Thank you for your patience whilst we work hard to fix this
