TOWPATH CLOSURE (9am Tuesday 14 June until 5.30pm Friday 24 June 2022)

As part of the refurbishment of historic Cambrian House, contractors will be repainting the outside of the building from the 14th to the 24th June, using scaffolding and a mobile platform.  Due to the narrow nature of the towpath immediately alongside the building, it will be necessary to close this small section of towpath during work periods to maintain public safety.

The towpath will be closed from 9am to 12noon, and 1 to 4.30pm Monday to Friday; to help with busy periods, you’ll be able to pass through before 9am and after 4.30pm, and between 12 and 1pm, each day.   A range of alternative routes are possible between Farmer’s Bridge top lock bridge and Tindal Bridge, including via James Brindley Walk.

Thank you for bearing with us during these works, which will help preserve Cambrian House for the long-term; we look forward to welcoming you back there when it reopens in July.
