We have found a way to undertake the wash wall repair works without the need for a stoppage – however we will need to close the towpath for some of the time. We will be in a position to advise of the dates for the towpath closure in the next couple of weeks.

This work was planned to commence on 16/01/2023 until 17/03/2023. To give us time to plan the alternative equipment needed, the works will now be scheduled to take place from 15/02/2023 until 30/04/2023.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.


A stoppage is required ot carry out 200 meters of washwall repairs at Frankton. Please note that we will do as much as possible to complete the works without a stoppage and further information will be provided once we engage with our framework suppliers. The repairs will be taking place from Bridge 1W, Rowsons Bridge to Bridge 68, Pryce's Bridge.
