NAVIGATION CLOSURE (11pm Sunday 24 July 2022 until further notice)

A large tree has fallen from a private property across the Trent & Mersey Canal in Shardlow, closing both the towpath and the navigation. The tree is situated approximately 100m downside of Bridge 3 (Idle Bridge), it has fallen from the towpath side of the canal.  

Our out of hours team attended site but were unable to clear the tree as it is too large to move so we have called in specialist contractors to remove the tree during daylight. We will work to ensure the tree is removed, and the navigation is re-opened as soon as is possible.
