TOWPATH CLOSURE (until further notice)

Please be advised following a recent inspection by a structural engineer, Brunswick Mill, a third party owned building, has been found to be unsafe. As a result of this, to protect members of the public, the towpath will be closed to all users between Bridge 5, Beswick Street Bridge and Bridge 7a, Joe Mercer Way on the Ashton Canal.
Whilst the canal will remain open to navigation at this point, we advise boaters to stay towards the offside of the canal when passing and politely request all customers to approach the area with caution and to listen to any advice that may be given by the contractors onsite
In anticipation to some changes that may be made, we ask that customers check our website regularly for new updates.
Signage displaying a diversion route will be in place.
