Salterhebble Repairs Hit Snag

Salterhebble Guillotine Lock, on the Calder and Hebble Navigation, should have been closed for a couple of days this week to enable the electrical mechanism to be repaired. However, unforeseen circumstances have delayed the completion of this repair and the lock will remain closed until at least Monday afternoon.

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. It had been hoped that the repair would have been complete by today (24th April) but the stoppage will continue until at least Monday

BW will issue a further update on Monday 27th April.
