This week the Canals and Rivers Trust has started some repair work on the stretch of canal towpath between the Mowsley Road bridge and the end of the tunnel.

This is good news for our poor, neglected towpath, and the even better news is that repairs will continue until Christmas so that several small sections can be improved. This will be much appreciated by the many walkers and boaters who use this... Read More »

Pam loved Bosworth, attended many of our functions, and was always ready to bake a cake or man a tea stall when required. Her funeral will... Read More »
