Health & Safety notice

Although the Old Canal Company, as owners of the Ebridge to Swafield Bridge reaches, welcome walkers, pleasure anglers, boaters and others to use the canal waters and banks for their enjoyment, the Trust would like to remind people that the canal and lands are private and are still undergoing restoration. At times canal maintenance work may mean that not all parts are accessible, water levels will vary and that public use is always at their own risk.

Work to build up the banks is taking place along the route of the canal between Ebridge Mill and Bacton Mill Lock and also between Bacton Mill Lock and Royston Bridge. Access to the canal walk along these stretches may be temporarily limited. 

Warning signs and barriers have been erected for the safety of the public. The NWDCT apologise for any inconvenience, access will be restored as soon as possible.
