Debris has been removed from this location. The navigation and towpath is now open.


Please be advised that due to Storm Ciara navigation on the Tame Valley canal is not possible between locks 8 and 11. This is due to roofing from adjacent buildings is completely covering Lock 9. The Trust is working closely with West Midlands Fire Brigade and structural engineers and will endeavour to re-open the canal as soon as the debris can be safely removed.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
