Although the Grand Western Canal suffered a breach in 2012, the repair works are now 100% complete. The canal has reopened in time for the canal's 200th birthday celebrations in May 2014. The horse-drawn barge also celebrates its 40th anniversary on the Grand Western Canal in 2014: 1974-2014.

The horse-drawn barge, boat hire, Ducks Ditty cafe/bar, canal side gift shop and NEW canal visitors centre are all OPEN and operating as normal for 2014.
