The canal and towpath will remain open during bridge inspection. Third party contractors will be carrying out a detailed bridge inspection via a temporary pontoon on the canal. Boaters and towpath users should approach with caution and may be asked to wait for a few minutes for the pontoon to be moved out of the way. 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.
