Huddersfield Narrow pounds emptied

The Marsden lock flight on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal has been closed for a day or two after careless boaters left paddles open.

Paddles on Locks 40E to 36E had been left open by boaters heading downhill, resulting in the pounds being completeley drained.

This made the flight is impassable and it has been closed to allow the water levels to recover. Because BW is only allowed a certain amount of water from Yorkshire Water it could take several days before the levels have returned to normal.

Boaters intending to use this part of the canal or booked through Standedge Tunnel should contact the BW on 0113 281 6860 for the latest information.

Lock 39e, Marsden
