We will be installing additional signage to encourage people to follow Government guidance on staying at home and social distancing. However, this requires people to act responsibly – if it’s too busy please take your exercise elsewhere.
At the weekend, we saw hundreds of people using the towpath, and at that level of use it’s very difficult to keep your distance, especially if you are cycling or running. Unfortunately, if use of the towpath doesn’t reduce, we may have to temporarily withdraw the permission for cycling on the towpath to relieve pressure on this popular area.
You are respectfully requested to:
• Run or cycle elsewhere at this time
• Not stop, picnic or sunbathe
• Give other walkers respect and keep your distance
• Consider walking elsewhere on other local paths
