How have we used the Navigation
for Exercise and Recreation during Lockdown?

Hear from our Panel of Navigation users what they did - and add your own experiences.

The lockdown may have prevented some regulars from visiting the navigation, but this has been more than made up for by local people discovering the gem on their doorsteps and the Navigation has been busier than ever before.

If you were one of the people able to use the Navigation for exercise or recreation, be it beside, on or even in the water, then we want to hear a little from you about what you were doing and what it was like for you.

If on the other hand, you were kept away, please join and hear about what lockdown was like on the river and towpath, and maybe ask some questions.
