Grand Union towpath collapses

Published: Monday, 20 April 2009
THERE was an urgent call to British Waterways on Saturday when a deep hole appeared in the towpath of the Grand Union Canal at Blisworth.

A team of engineers inspected the site, which was then fenced off from the public, though passage is still possible, and we are told the hole will be filled in during the week. The navigation is not affected.
