TOWPATH CLOSURE (7.30am Monday 20 September until 4.30pm Sunday 17 October 2021)

The towpath will be closed but navigation will remain open.

Contractors Kings Scaffolding will be erecting scaffolding along the rear of the towpath and offside of the canal to undertake essential cladding works to the Brindley House Building. These works are essential fire safety works. The scaffolding and pontoons will be on site for approx. 18 months to facilitate the works. The pontoons will be on the offside of the canal causing minimal disruption to the canal network.

Due to Health & Safety reasons, during the erection of the scaffolding, the towpath will be closed for a period of 4 weeks, starting from 20th September. Signage and a diversion route will be in place for towpath users. Please follow directions from banksmen and take care when using the diversion route or whilst passing through this section.
