The Canal is now open and normal business can be resumed.


Due to the canalisation of the River Salwarpe the Droitwich Barge Canal and Junction Canal are closed due to the rise in river level. The canals will be reopened once the river levels drop out. The levels are being monitored by Trust staff.
