Type:Navigation Closure
Is the towpath closed?Yes


Please be advised that a worsening leak, which we have been unable to resolve with water in the navigation, unfortunately means we must introduce an additional stoppage at Limpley Stoke, on the Kennet & Avon Canal. Temporary measures are already in place control the situation whilst our contractors mobilise, and we are striving for them to be on site by the end of January, 2024.

We expect the navigation to be closed for around 6 weeks, while we install dams, remove the water from the canal and effect the repairs.

Our target for completion is 15th March 2024.

We will update this notice as the arrangements and programme develop.
