Volunteers will cease efforts of the Montgomery Canal Restoration near Llanymynech due to coronavirus.

Fred Barrett, publicity officer for the Shropshire Union Canal Society, said: “It is with great regret that Shropshire Union Canal Society has understandably suspended activity on the last 330 metres of dry channel that will link the newly re-developed Crickheath Winding Hole to the restored section at Pryces Bridge.

“This is particularly disappointing because the March work party had provided a sense of real purpose, having overcome a number of very challenging problems during the dreadful weather conditions that prevailed in the winter.”
