The New River Path is Open again. You can now walk along the river on the new non-muddy path. It will look much better when the grass starts to grow on the banks. Thames Water will be back in April to sow some more grass and check all is OK. When the grass has properly covered the banks and is strong enough, TW will take down the fencing.
If you are a dog owner who walks this way, please do not let your dog foul on the bank as you cannot get access to clear it up. It would a great pity if the bank becomes one large open-air dogs' lavatory.
Let us hope that the new (and ugly) tall fencing does indeed stop the graffiti lads from painting the Tunnel Mouth - a listed building.
I look forward to sitting on the grassy bank next year - or maybe even later this year - and enjoying our lovely river.
It's great to have this open again. I don't think that the fencing looks too bad, and I am hoping that the industrial chic steel sheet piles to the edge of the river mellow with time
