Whilst the issue with the wall remains unresolved, we are actively working with the appropriate authorities to get the area made safe and bring the towpath back into public use as soon as we can.


A 3rd party towpath wall on the southern side of Hills Bridge, Biddings Lane Coseley is on the verge of collapse across what is a very narrow section of towpath. We are doing everything possible to ensure the owner remedies the situation as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we have no option other than to close the towpath. The navigation remains open.
