Please be advised that whilst dredging is in progress in the Bathpool – Taunton area a boom will be placed across the canal to reduce the amount of floating reed etc drifting downstream.

Boaters wishing to pass through are requested to speak to the team.  The barrier can be opened to allow passage with delays of a maximum of one hour.

The dredging works are scheduled to be carried out between the M5 and Firepool Lock until 6th November 2020.  The navigation and towpath will remain open, though boaters may experience short delays when passing the dredger and the associated plant.
