Winter stoppages

Each winter, we take the opportunity of reduced cruising activity to concentrate effort on essential repairs and maintenance to the canals. In many cases we have to close the waterway and occasionally the towpath.

Before we carry out our winter maintenance programme we like to consult the people who use our waterways. We want to make sure that our winter stoppages cause as little disruption as possible.

We have now gathered and reviewed all feedback on our winter maintenance programme 2017/18. Thank you for all of your comments.

You can view our finalised plans below.

Search for a stoppage

There are three different ways to search for planned winter stoppages. You can download a PDF of all our stoppages, download maps of our different regions or use the search page to search by canal, region or date.
