The canal will remain open when third party contractors carry out depth measurements of the canal via a small inflatable boat. The works will also include surveys of associated weirs, culverts and watercourses. Please approach with caution and be prepared to wait a few minutes for the surveyors to move out of the way. 

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.
