Councillors have unveiled the newly refurbished towpath between Hemel Hempstead, Nash Mills and Kings Langley thanks to Hemel Garden Communities and funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.
The works involved resurfacing an 800-metre area of the towpath between Nash Mills, Apsley and the River Gade lakes, as well as making the area more accessible by trimming bushes and trees.
The improvements were delivered in partnership with Three Rivers District Council, Dacorum Borough Council, Nash Mills and Kings Langley Parish Councils, who have all contributed financially, with the support of Hertfordshire County Council and the Canal & River Trust.
Cllr Sarah Nelmes, Leader of Three Rivers District Council, adds: “I am delighted that this key section that links Nash Mills, Hemel Hempstead and Kings Langley has seen much-needed improvement works.
“Not only does the new high-quality surfacing bring health and wellbeing benefits, but it also enables residents to enjoy their walks by the canal even more. We are grateful to all our partners for all their efforts in making these towpath improvements possible.”
