Towpath closure - Consall Forge

We have been advised by Canal & River Trust of a towpath closure on the Caldon Canal at bridge 50A from Thursday 4 December 2014 until further notice.

We have been made aware that bridge 50A Consall Forge has deteriorated rapidly, because of this we have had to close the towpath at this location.

Signage is in place locally to notify towpath users.

Work to repair the damage is planned and we will update users accordingly.

The following update was issued on 5th December

The timber walkway under the Railway Bridge at Consall Forge has started to deteriorate and for safety reasons has been closed.  An inspection has revealed the bearing timbers have gone rotten and requires replacement.

A project to replace the walkway is being planned and we will update users accordingly.
