Gloucestershire City Council has received funding to greatly improve the towpath for a length of 3.5 kilometres. The benefits will see the majority of towpath widened with an improved surface, suitable for use in all weathers.

We hope these improvements will encourage people to use the towpaths on their daily commute as well as for a means of relaxing and will leave the busy roads behind!
