The aim is to open a site to the west of the Berwick Tunnel as a local attraction, restoring the tunnel portal and adjacent lengthsman’s hut and creating an accessible path along both sides of the canal to make a circular walk. This will hopefully raise awareness of the canal and gain support for the eventual reopening to navigation. Also, the south portal has been worked on to open the towpath from the Uffington Road, through Widow’s Bridge up to the portal.
