Users of the towpath from the Bonded Warehouse towards the Wollaston Bridge would have had a shock this morning as the towpath was blocked by a large decaying poplar tree which had fallen across the towpath near the weir – regular users of the route will recognize where this is from the photograph below.

We are grateful to Lloyd  Stacey at the nearby Riverside Project for alerting us to the incident – the matter was then quickly reported to the Canal & River Trust who instructed  a team of contractors  to attend the site as a matter of urgency to remove the significant trunk of the tree as quickly and cleanly as possible. We hope that the barrier is removed very soon to allow our Easter walkers, joggers and anglers to pass by safely.

Update: the towpath was cleared very quickly thanks to Canal & River Trust who must have worked hard to shift such sizeable  lengths of tree trunk and to secure new fencing – the way is now clear for all to traverse, though boaters please watch out for the large section of tree which remains in the water near the bridge where the tree fell.
