Wall Collapse Shuts Towpath

A collapsed wall has shut the towpath of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal between Locks 14w and 15w in Mossley.
A section of the 15 foot high wall, part of a single storey weaving shed at Woodend Mill, has fallen onto the lockside of Lock 14w. Part of the wall is leaning outwards, showing that a further collapse is possible. BW has closed the towpath to ensure the safety of walkers. It would appear that none of the rubble has fallen as far as the lock chamber.
