Stoppage on Huddersfield Narrow

Boaters on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal face delays after problems have been found with two locks near Slaithwaite.

There is a problem with the cill at Lock 24e, the Guillotine Lock in Slaithwaite. There is also a problem with the by-wash at nearby Lock 26e. Excessive leaking is causing the pound above to lose water so that a navigable level cannot be sustained.

BW staff have put in stop planks to preserve water levels and have been monitoring the levels during the day. Repairs will be carried out as soon as possible.

BW staff are on hand to keep boaters in the area updated.

Anyone with a booking to pass through Standedge Tunnel should phone BW on 01782 785703 for advice.
