Update on 18/10/2021:

The sinkhole has been filled in over the weekend with 5 tonnes of stone and tightly packed down with 2 tonnes of soil on the top.

We will continue to have the area fenced off, so we can closely monitor it for if any changes were to occur.

ADVICE (3.30pm Wednesday 13 October 2021 until further notice)

A sinkhole has appeared close to the low towpath side gates.

The area is now fenced off, please be careful when operating the lower gates.

Engineering team will be out on Friday to assess the situation and we will update the notice following the on site visit.
