Since the last stoppage update in August we've been working closely with our engineers and contractors to develop a cost-effective and time-efficient design for the washwall repairs.
We will not be able to commence work on 2nd January, as originally advertised, but will start week commencing 21st January. The canal will still be reopened to navigation on 15th March as planned, although we will continue to work on the towpath. We apologise for the late notice of this change to the stoppage.
