Boaters passing through Huddersfield will experience delays due to a problem at Lock 1e at Huddersfield University.
The lock has suffered failure of the cill and quoins and cannot be kept full, making passage very difficult. The lock will be closed on Thursday 17th June to enable a BW team to make emergency repairs.
The lock will re-open at 9.00 am on Friday 18th June. In the meantime, eastbound boats should moor above Lock 3e. (BW suggests mooring above Lock 2e but there is little room there and no easy or official access to the street.)
Any enquiries regarding this stoppage should be made to BW on 01782 785703.
Lock 1e, Huddersfield
