Remember, as part of efforts to tackle the Coronavirus crisis, we are asking all boaters to stop non-essential travel, so please limit movements to access vital facilities – you can see more at https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/safety-on-our-waterways/coronavirus/coronavirus-and-boating-faqs
A silt survey will be undertaken this week to enable us to programme works to get the silt removed. Timescales for the re-opening of the navigation to be advised as soon as possible.
