Redwith Bridge to Pryces Bridge is back in water (June 2014)

for the first time in over 80 yrs CLICK HERE for photos.


Stop-boards were replaced after the new section was found to be leaking substantially.  Investigation indicates that the leakage is through the piling on the towpath side and further work to rectify the problem is under way.


Work is now under way on the Pryces Bridge/Crickheath restoration section by the SUCS.


And, on the Welsh Section.


Work was completed on the £260,000 towpath restoration between Carreghofa and

Four Crosses brings this section of towpath up to the standards required for

 use by walkers, cyclists, anglers and canoeists.

Several new canoe access points have also been provided.

Towpath restoration between Pool Quay and Crowther Hall lock has been completed

in time for the Triathlon in May.

CRT's newly repaired 'rake' cutter has been working near Pool Quay and :-

a contractor's super tracked cutter (which can climb up banks!)

is working above Belan Locks - going as far as Refail if all goes to plan.  


Lottery boosts Montgomery Canal restoration.
