A 1km stretch of towpath along the Aire & Calder navigation near Stanley Ferry has just reached completion thanks to Community Payback teams from West Yorkshire Probation.

Between October 2010 and May 2011 a new towpath has been installed between Stanley Ferry and Birkwood Lock.

In total, over 1,000 unpaid work days have been recorded by the group and a further 2km is planned in for the next section of towpath refurbishment between Kings Road Lock working towards Fairies Hill Marina.
