One Day Delay on Macclesfield Canal

Boaters using the Macclesfield Canal face a delay of one day due to an unexpected stoppage at Royal Oak Swing Bridge, Fools Nook, between Macclesfield and Bosley Locks.

The swing bridge will be closed to navigation on Monday 1st February to allow electrical maintenance work to take place. Boaters should moor up and wait until the work is completed.

United Utilities, who supply power to the swing bridge, have advised British Waterways of their intention to carry out essential maintenance to distribution system nearby. which will make the bridge inoperable as there will be no power available.
