The Towpath and Canal are still open.

We ask vessels to navigate slowly and with caution whilst passing and request all users of the Canal and Towpath to please listen to any advice from the local team.

We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause , if you wish to speak to our Customer Service Team please contact 03030404040 or email enquiries.walessouthwest@canalrivertrust.org.uk.

Description

Please be advised that the towpath users may experience short delays whilst we set up a dam around the inlet of Claverton Pumping Station. The dam will allow us to dewater the structure, clear all debris from the inlet, carry out repairs and finally complete a survey of the site.

The Canal will remain open throughout, but be restricted locally. We ask vessels to navigate slowly and with caution while passing and request all users of the water or towpath to please listen to any advice from the local team.

We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause if you require any further information please contact us on enquiries.walessouthwest.org.uk or call our Customer Service Team on 03030404040.

In case of an out of hours emergency please ring Freephone Canals on 08004799947.
