Please be advised that due to scheduling issues, the proposed works will now begin at a later date, from Wednesday 1st July, until Monday 6th July. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Description

Please be advised these works have been re-scheduled due to recent bad weather.

This section of towpath will be closed whilst we undertake surface dressing works to the previously completed tarmac surfacing, which was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. All works have been carefully considered before returning to site and will be done as per current Government guidance. Towpath works at this location is funded by the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) to provide better accessibility for walkers and cyclists. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your 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.
