Works are now on site until 3rd June.


The navigation and towpath will remain open. Contractors working on behalf of Persimmon Homes will be undertaking tree clearance works, boundary wall demolition and installing a new access onto the towpath from their new development site. During the works, barriers will be in place to separate the workers from the public; signage and banksmen will be used. We kindly remind customers to approach with caution and follow directions given on site. Please take extra care when passing through the work areas.
