ADVICE (9am Tuesday 19 July 2022 until further notice)

We are currently experiencing very low water levels on the  Wyrley & Essington Canal near Cannock Extension, the Daw End Canal and the Rushall Canal.

Our water management team are doing all they can to manage the situation.

We are advising boats not to move until water levels have been recovered.
