It has never been closed, why would you want to got here without a reason?
To be clear, anyone can walk down there, we all just choose not to do so to respect the residents

It was closesd to the public before the floods. And opposite to what 'never' said the passage isn't public access and hasn't been since its closed, cause if you walk to the end you'd be tresspassing in Harveys Yard and I'd call the police!

Maybe some of you don't realise that you used to be able to walk through English Passage to get to the river, before they blocked it off.

I remember those days when I was younger! And you could walk through the brewery and they'd roll barrels past and it smelt brilliant! Shame they closed it.

It must have been closed in the late 90's. I remember a colleague of mine drafting the relevant order, and I left there in early 2000. It was post-1996 though, as we were in different buildings then, and I wouldn't have known about it.

It was before the floods in 2000 but not many years before. The path ran between the two sides of Harvey's yard.

I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
