Limited opening resumes at Salterhebble

Trouble-hit Salterhebble Guillotine Lock is to re-open to navigation on Friday 1st May, but with the same limited opening hours that were in operation before the attmepted repair.

From 1st May, the Guillotine Lock will be operated by BW staff during the following periods only:
• 9.00 am - 10.00 am daily
• 12.00 noon - 2.00 pm daily
• 4.00 pm - 6.00 pm daily

Electrical problems occurred with Salterhebble Lock in May 2008 and since then the guillotine has been manually operated by BW staff at certain times each day. The lock ahas been closed for the last week and, although it was hoped repairs would have been complete by 24th April, unforseen problems mean that the guillotine will still have to be operated by BW staff.

BW will issue a further update on Friday 8th May.
