Covid-19 Urgent Advice – Canal and Tow Path Use

Hi this is the Covid-19 Latest update I have had and the advice that is now in place = This advice relates to all CRT property and in particular for us – on using our Canal and River Trust towpaths along the Wyrley and Essington Canal here in Wednesfield and Wolverhampton, at this particular time

Dear Phil,

We don’t want to overload you with emails at this time, but we do want to keep you up-to-date with the latest information on using our towpaths.

Whilst our canals and rivers remain open, we are letting everyone know that, in an effort to keep everyone safe, use of them should now be limited.

If our waterways are local to you, and you use the towpath for your daily exercise or journey to undertake essential work, we are now urging you to please avoid any stretches with boats moored against the towpath, and of course, strictly observe social distancing at all times, always following the latest advice from Government.

We will continue to update our website page with the latest information as the situation evolves.

As always, please stay safe as we look after one another at this unprecedented time.

Steph, Canal & River Trust
