Description

Towpath remains open when the Canal & River Trust undertake works to improve the towpath surfacing between Downfield Road Bridge and Long Butts Drawbridge, as part of a larger project with Stoke City Council. Pedestrians are advised to approach the workforce with caution and banksmen will be present to pause the public until it is safe to pass the works, if necessary, during the works.

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.
