SUMBA Completes Towpath at Hoolgrave Bridge

Home » News » SUMBA Completes Towpath at Hoolgrave Bridge

On Sat Oct 15 SUMBA's volunteers completed the backfilling of the repaired wash walls between bridges 11 & 12.
Top soil was laid over the gravel and rubble that had been inserted behind the wash walls in Aug & Sept.
Later this month grass seeds will be spread over the soil.

The improved and widened surface to the towpath will benefit all users of the Church Minshull circular canal walk.
