We are sorry to advise that we have not yet been able to remove the large tree which is still blocking the navigation adjacent to Milkhouse Water Bridge.

The delay is due to the unprecedented number of trees which have fallen in the recent winds and a requirement for specialist equipment, due to its size and position.

Work to remove this tree is programmed for Saturday 15th, but will only be completed if safe to work, given the forecast of further strong winds and sustained, heavy rain.

We will update this notice again on Monday 17th Feb.

Please contact our Customer Service Team on 03030404040 or email enquiries.walessouthwest@canalrivertrust.org.uk if there is any aspect of this notice you would like to discuss.

Description

Due to the high winds, a tree has unfortunately blown down and is currently blocking the navigation adjacent to Milkhouse Water Bridge.

Our tree contractors will attend as soon as possible on Monday 10th February and a further update will be provided by midday on Monday.
