We have become aware that Bridgewater Canal have changed their approach to enforcement for Canal & River Trust licencees.  They have confirmed to us that they are only allowing Trust licencees a 7 consecutive day access to the canal without charge, no return allowed within 28 days.  After the 7 days is expired people will be required to purchase short-term licences.

Canal & River Trust are seeking to review this change with the Bridgewater Canal and will advise further when this is done.
