Tixall Wide visitor mooring to be closed from May to September

Published: Monday, 13 March 2023

CANAL & River Trust state that visitor moorings on the Staffs & Worcs by Tixall Wide will be closed whilst towpath works are undertaken.

This is the section of towpath between Haywood Junction and Milford Turnover Bridge that includes Tixall Wide, Keith Gudgin reports.

Nearly five months to complete

Contractors will take nearly five months—from Monday 8th May until Friday 29th September—to resurface the towpath.

The trust states: 'This will mean that any visitor moorings located between Milford Turnover Bridge to Haywood Bridge on the Staffordshire & Worcester Canal will also be closed during the works'.

So the very populat Tixall Wide moorings it seems will not be available all summer.
