Grass mowing map

Mowing the grass is an essential aspect of canal maintenance, and each area of our towpath is mown to its own unique requirements. We’ve created a useful map to help keep you informed of the different mowing specifications we apply across our network.

Zoom into the map to find details on mowing specifications. Please note you will need to fully zoom in to see all available information. 

Our key can be expanded by clicking the icon in the top right-hand corner.

See our programme of grass cutting for week commencing 11 October 2021.


We'd love to hear your feedback

Our mowing regime is reviewed during the winter, so if you would like us to consider a change or a more sensitive approach in your area, please contact us online or at your local regional forum.

More information

All mowing specifications are decided through consultation with the local region to ensure that user requirements, landscape character, native wildflowers and biodiversity value are all taken into account.
