Canal Towpath Upgrade Complete!


Canal River Trust and London Borough of Hillingdon recently undertook a major project to improve the canal towpath adjacent to Stockley Park. Gone are the potholes and puddles as the pathway is now smooth and safer to use. As you can see from our photos, cyclists, as well as walkers, are now able to use the towpath for a picturesque trip around the local area. The upgraded towpath stretches from Hayes to West Drayton.

Originally used to transport produce between London and Birmingham, the Grand Union Canal is the longest canal looked after by the Canal River Trust, spanning 137 miles between the two cities.

To make the area look as neat the new towpath deserves, the Stockley Park Landscaping team spent time litter picking the stretch by Stockley Park. Four bags of litter were safely collected and disposed of by the team!
