Emailed OneTraford on 28th Nov regarding the footpath blockage who advised me that the Bridgewater Canal Company were the responsible agent for this location and they had forwarded my email to them. Received email today, 30th November, informing me that the tree has been removed. Full marks to both Trafford and the BCC for their very prompt action.

Walked 26/11/16. Again a good walk on a very frosty and foggy day. Very little mud encountered. At WP 14 there is a tree blocking the footpath from the canal to the road. Just prior to the bridge leave the towpath on the footpath leading to the opposite side of the road then carefully cross the road to the safety of the pavement and continue the walk.

Walked 27/02/16. Excellent winter walk with straightforward navigation and no signs of any mud despite all the recent rain we have had. A couple of minor points to assist others who may undertake this walk. Waypoint 4 there are three sets of power lines crossing the canal. The first two are fairly close together and can be ignored. Continue along the canal and you will come to the third set which is where you leave the canal. I couldn't see any sign on the opposite bank for the The Swan with two Nicks. The start and finish point is The Lymm Hotel which is part of the Macdonald Hotel Group. The blue notice board is now black and signed 'The Lymm Hotel'. At Waypoint 18 instead of turning right for the car park/rangers office just cross the road to the continuation of the TPT and the Rangers Office/Carpark is just a few feet along the trail. Thanks for another good walk Jim.
