The towpath and canal will remain open. Third party contractors will be repairing cladding on the offside buildings of Farmers Bridge Lock flight. Abseilers will descend the building on the offside to repair the cladding. The contractor will utilise a safety net, banksmen and signage to reduce disruption for canal users.

From Wednesday 13 May our canals and rivers are open for navigation. Our towpaths are also open for exercise or journeys to undertake essential work, but please try to avoid any stretches with boats moored against the towpath. Strictly observe social distancing at all times, following the latest advice from the government. Before you go by boat, bike or boot, remember to check your route.
