Please be advised there is a windblown tree between Bridge 117, Salmons Bridge and Bridge 118, Davies Bridge on the Shropshire Union Canal, which is partially over the towpath.  

Our contractors conducted a second site visit this week, due to complications they are currently planning an alternative method for removal of the windblown tree, we anticipate works to commence in two weeks.

Navigation and towpath will remain open until the works commence. We politely request all towpath customers to approach the affected area with care.

An update will be provided by Friday 22 October.
