Lock 23w of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal is closed today for repairs to a broken paddle. Canal and River Trust staff need to de-water a section of canal in order to carry out the repair. It is hoped the lock will be re-opened later today. Staff will keep waiting boaters informed of progress.
Lock 23w is Lime Kiln Lock which is below Saddleworth Railway Viaduct between Uppermill and Dobcross.
