Hatherton Canal "stoppage"

Back in March last year I received a stoppage alert from waterscape.com. Nothing unusual about that, you say. But the "stoppage" was interesting because it related to a canal which has, for the most part, been unnavigable for decades.

All right, it was just the towpath which was closed. But it did catch my attention!

From waterscape.com:

Towpath Closure only: Hatherton Canal

Saredon Brook Feeder Outfall

Monday 21 March 2011 - Thursday 31 March 2011
Engineering works to install Hydrometric monitoring equipment and pipework in the culvert beneath the towpath between Monday 21st and Thursday 31st March.

British Waterways apologises for any inconvenience caused.

Enquiries: 01827 252000
