Please be advised our local teams will be onsite to carry out a detailed inspection of Preston Brook Tunnel on the Trent and Mersey Canal.

To enable the Tunnels team to complete a principal inspection of the Preston Brook Tunnel, they will be utilising a work boat which will be moving slowly through the tunnel and there is insufficient width for boats to pass within the tunnel.

The tunnel will be available to customers as soon as the inspection is completed.  Please note that the work boat may need to make several transits though the tunnel as part of the inspection.

We anticipate a wait of around 6 hours to undertake this detailed inspection.
