Towpath is closed between Hawkesbury Junction and Bridge 9A for a six-week period as part of the City of Culture improvement works. During this first phase of the project, the Canal & River Trust is working together with Coventry City Council to undertake towpath improvement works. The towpath will need to be closed so our contractors can undertake the works in a safe manner. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

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.
