Towpath Closed

Towpath Closed

May 16th 2022 for two months – see below

Please note: A last minute issue with the supply of materials means the project start date is to be rescheduled – the towpath remains open until further notice

(Part of National Cycling Network 15)

The Grantham Canal Towpath will be closed between:

Harlaxton Drift (Bridge 66) and Denton Wharf (Bridge 65)

This closure is necessary to enable essential work to be carried out to Denton Spillweir 1 and to repair and refurbish the associated towpath bridge.

The towpath bridge will be lifted out of place for the duration of the works.

Two diversion routes for towpath users are in place (these will be waymarked on the day before closure):

Still unsure where this towpath closure is?

It’s towards the Grantham end of the canal between Bridges 65 & 66.  This page in our online guide may help:
