The continuing water shortage in the North-West, already affecting the Rochdale and Leeds & Liverpool Canals, is now causing problems for boaters hoping to visit Liverpool or the Ribble Link.
From today British Waterways will be taking no further bookings for boats to use the Liverpool Canal Link to reach Liverpool Docks or the Ribble Link to reach the Lancaster Canal.
Boaters who have already made bookings will have those bookings honoured by BW, although that may change if the situation worsens.
BW will issue an update on Friday 9th July.
Enquiries about these restrictions should be made to BW on 01942 405700.
