Stoppage in Wigan for investigation

Boaters in Wigan face a delay on Thursday if they are travelling between the Wigan Junction and Wigan Pier.

The two locks between Wigan Junction and Wigan Pier (Locks 86 and 87) and the pound between them will be closed on Thursday 11th August. It is necessary to de-water Lock 86 to investigate a reported obstruction in the water.

It is not known how many hours the stoppage will last. BW staff will be on hand at Locks 86 and 87 to advise boaters.

Poolstock Locks and the main Wigan flight will not be affected by this stoppage.

Henhurst Lock, 86, Wigan
