Rochdale restrictions start to bite

As water resources on the Rochdale Canal summit are diminishing with no sign in near future of replenishment, BW is reducing the number of passages across the summit. Only two boats a day in each direction will be allowed passage.

Boaters should book their passage through the Red Bull office on 01782 785703 in the usual way, but be aware that the date they want may not always be available due to other bookings.

Bookings are not currently being accepted for passages for mid-August onwards.

Some rain fell falling in the area overnight but not enough yet to make any appreciable difference to the supply situation.

Any enquiries regarding the situation should be made to BW on 01782 785703.


Summit level, Rochdale Canal
