Yorkshire Stoppages

BW has announced that the stoppage currently underway at Forge Locks on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal is to be extended until 12th March 2009.

This is because damage has been found to the lock wall and pressure grouting is going to be necessary.

The Stainforth and Keadby Canal (South Yorkshire Navigation) is currently closed between Mauds Swingbridge and Crowle due to a very dense mat of weed. A workboat is scheduled to remove the weed next week.

Ganny Lock, which is just above Brighouse on the Calder and Hebble, is currently closed for gate replacement. This lock will re-open on 13th March.

For more information about additional or extended stoppages, please see Pennine Waterways' Stoppages page.
