Parts of the canal were recently repaired due to leaks
A stretch of the Shropshire Union Canal has now fully reopened weeks after part of it was closed because of a leak.
The canal started to leak at Shebdon Embankment, Staffordshire, in August and the closure led to boats using other waterways, hitting local trade.
The Shropshire Union Canal Society said the total cost of repairing the damage - put down to general wear and tear - was in the region of £500,000.
Some of the leaks were fixed last month but a stretch had remained closed.
The 110-mile route begins at Stoke-on-Trent, joins the Shropshire Union Canal and passes through Market Drayton, Audlem and Nantwich, before turning east towards Middlewich and back to Stoke-on-Trent.
