Peak Forest Stoppage for Aqueduct Work

The Lower Peak Forest Canal is to be closed at Romiley for the first two weeks of March.

This is to allow the canal to be dewatered at Hatherlow Aqueduct, just south of Holehouse Fold Bridge, where the main road crosses the canal in Romiley.

Hatherlow Aqueduct crosses the narrow Green Lane and BW will be investigating leakage from the aqueduct. Remedial work such as grouting the aqueduct's structure and relining the canal with more puddling clay will be carried out if needed.

The stoppage is from 1st March to 15th March 2010.
