Date: 7th November 2019
Published by: Admin

The Canal and River Trust has started work to repair the Macclesfield Canal at Bollington, Cheshire, spending nearly £1 million refurbishing a section of the 200-year-old canal.

In order to carry out the important repairs, the canal between bridges 26 and 27 will be drained of water. An 80-metre section of the canal bed will then be re-lined with a concrete liner and repairs to the wash walls will be undertaken. The work is expected to be completed by March 2020.

The towpath is now closed between bridge 26 and Clarence Mill Footbridge throughout the works with diversions in place. Access to Clarence Mill will still be available.
