Update on 10/05/2022:

Due to unforeseen works Land & Water came across, there has been a delay in construction and the fabric dam will need to be in place until the end of the works.

RESTRICTION (8am Thursday 24 March until 5pm Friday 6 May 2022)

The navigation and towpath will remain open. Land & Water will be installing a fabric dam to facilitate the construction of the offside winding hole next to Bristol Road Bridge (Bridge 80). The dam will be approximately halfway across the canal restricting the width of the navigation. Signage and buoys will be utilised to manage canal traffic. We kindly remind boating customers to follow signage and directions given on site. Please take extra care when passing through this area.
