Coronavirus (COVID-19) Communication to Bridgewater Canal Users
recent Government announcement on 31st October 2020 advising of the new
national lockdown measures in England from 5th November, the
Bridgewater Canal team will be working throughout to ensure our response to the
COVID-19 pandemic is consistent with current Government advice.
Our main priority
is the health and wellbeing of our staff, customers, and the general public who
use our canal and towpath, which will remain open, as will all Bridgewater
Canal Company facilities for essential use.
If you are considering
visiting the Bridgewater Canal, please ensure that you follow the Government
advice and social distancing measures. All information can be found on the Government
towpath users (pedestrians/cyclists/dog walkers/runners) should strictly
observe social distancing at all times and obey local signage regarding cycling.
this four week lockdown period, there may be a delay in receiving new hard copy
licences and boat number plates due to remote working. Do not worry if you are
unable to display or do not receive your boat licence within this period as our
Enforcement Team can confirm if a craft is licenced via our database
this period, there may be a delay with receiving postal correspondence. If you wish
to contact us, please do so via our e-mail Bridgewatercanal@peel.co.uk.
Once again thank
you all for your co-operation and understanding during these very difficult times.
Director – Bridgewater
