Fishing and watersports
Following the Government’s announcement on Sunday 10th May, we’d like to remind all Canal users that fishing is not currently permitted. This is because the narrow width of the towpath means social distancing is not possible. Thank you for your understanding.
We would also like to clarify the current position on watersports. Our Cafe remains closed and our staff are furloughed, therefore we are unable to process applications to renew or purchase licences. It is not permitted to paddle without a licence. Furthermore, due to the current weed conditions at the Canal, we would advise against any watersport activity. Thank you for your understanding.
