One Day Stoppage on Leeds & Liverpool Should Help Water Levels

Lock 40 on the Bank Newton lock flight of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal will be closed on Friday 12th June.

Because the locks are already subject to restricted opening hours, this means that the locks will close at 6.00 pm on 11th June and re-open at 10.00 am on 13th June.

Both ground paddles at the lock are worn out and need replacing urgently. British Waterways believes that this will aid water control and significantly reduce the loss of water in the East Marton pound, which has been a problem for some time.

Anyone needing more information about this stoppage should contact BW on 0113 281 6860.
