Whitchurch Arm

(1.5 miles, Canal in different ownerships, but line of new canal available to Whitchurch Waterway Trust)

Although parts of the line of the original arm into Whitchurch have been built over and are no longer available, the Whitchurch Waterway Trust promotes the construction of a new waterway into the town.  A short section of original canal has been reopened and the Trust maintains permanent and visitor moorings.  Chemistry Bridge, owned by the Trust, has been restored and re-opened to pedestrians.  This footpath links the towpath to the town via a new country park and is now part of the Sandstone Trail.  Planning permission has been obtained to extend the canal a short distance towards the town of Whitchurch, terminating in a new basin, which does not preclude eventual further extension.
