CW Circular Walk 15 - "The Canal Trail"


GR 400 835

Ansty.  Canal Bridge near Rose and Castle demolished.

From early-2011, the canal bridge No 25 near the Rose and Castle has been closed "for repair".  Towards the end of 2011 it became clear that the plan had changed from "repair" to "demolish as a bridge, leaving just the new support walls for the remaining approach embankments from each side of the former bridge".  We therefore have had to redefine the route used for Walk 15 through Ansty.


The 21 Circular Walk Book Walk 15, route description para 7 first sentence and start of second sentence should now read:
"With Rose and Castle opposite, do NOT cross road.  T/R and follow road until it has crossed the canal, then T/R down steps, V/R to join towpath then V/L canal right, under M69 ... "

Should you wish to see the space where the bridge was, you can go "Over road to Rose and Castle then go down to the bottom of the Beer Garden and see a sort of view of the site, then return to the road", or for a better view:

"Over road to Rose and Castle T/L along road till end of houses, T/R down enclosed path to go over canal bridge.  T/R to scramble down to V-stile onto towpath, T/L canal right" to rejoin old route just beyond demolished bridge.
