We've been alerted to a serious landslip in the Easenhall Cutting, on the north Oxford Canal near Brinklow.  This has blocked both towpath and navigation, and we've had to shut both temporarily to maintain public safety.

We'll be carrying out a detailed investigation tomorrow Thursday 8th February, and will be able to provide a fuller update then.  Thank you for bearing with us while we investigate and resolve this issue.
