Please be advised that the visitor moorings by Haywood Bridge and up to Trent Lane, as well as by Mill Lane, have been closed when we are working on the towpath and transporting materials. We will endeavour to provide update as soon as we can reopen these moorings.

TOWPATH CLOSURE (Monday 24 May until Monday 26 July 2021)

The towpath will be closed from Iron Bridge 72A, Trent & Mersey Canal, to Bridge 109 Haywood Bridge at the junction with Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. The navigation will remain open.
Towpath improvement works will be carried out by contractors. The Canal & River Trust is working in partnership with the National Trust to connect Shugborough Park and Great Haywood, located on the Trent & Mersey Canal, with the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal at Stafford. A diversion route will be advertised on site with notification. We kindly ask customers to take extra care when following the diversion route to re-join towpath.
