Please be advised that works have been delayed due to bad weather. The towpath will be closed overnight until the new completion date of 4th September. Thank you for your understanding. 


The towpath will be closed overnight from 8pm to 6am between 13/07/20 and 21/08/20 when third party contractors carry out repairs to a bridge via temporary pontoon and scaffold. For the duration of the works, navigation and towpath will remain open but boaters should approach with caution and may be asked to wait a few minutes for the pontoon to be moved out of the way. Sustrans has been informed. Warning signs and banksmen will be used. Thank you for your co-operation. 

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.
