Restriction on Rochdale Canal

There are restricted opening hours currently on a section of the Rochdale Canal between Chadderton and Slattocks.

BW is investigating problems with the the pound between Lock 63 (Walk Mill) and Lock 62 (Coney Green). The water level is having to be kept low and passage through the pound can only be made between 9.30 am and 3.00 pm each day.

This is the pound immediately upstream from Irk Aqueduct, the recommended overnight moorings for boats heading to or from Manchester.

Enquiries about this restriction should be made to BW on 01782 785703.

Update, 18th October 2010:
This restriction will remain in place for the rest of 2010. BW is seeking a solution to the leakage problem. BW will issue an update on 10th January 2011.
