Canal & River Trust Improve the Towpath in Hinckley in July 2020

C&RT, thanks to funding secured from Taylor Wimpey as part of a local development project, have begun improving a 240 metre section of the Ashby Canal towpath in Hinckley. The aim of the project is to provide a clean, green route connecting the Sansome Drive housing development with Nutts Lane.

The improvements will involve making the towpath wider and laying a new surface, which will make it more appealing for the local community to spend time by the water.

The works began on Monday 6 July and are anticipated to last for four weeks. Our thanks go to local resident and ACA member, Steve Rhodes, for keeping an eye on proceedings.
