Ramblers in London welcome the new Canal & River Trust towpath code, Share The Space, Drop Your Pace.

Canal & River Trust want everyone to enjoy visiting their canals and rivers and, more than anything, they want people to be safe.  With towpaths busier than ever this is something that all visitors need to play a part in.

Dick Vincent, the national towpath ranger says "If you’re in a rush, the towpath is not the best place for you so please choose a different route.” 

The Canal & River Trust website includes videos with tips on sharing the space https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/about-us/our-campaigns/share-the-space-our-towpath-code
