One Day Stoppage on Ashton

The Ashton Canal will be affected by an emergency stoppage on Tuesday 29th June for the repair of a failed tailgate paddle on Lock 7 (Park Lock) next to Alan Turing Way.

Lock 7 will be closed between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm. Boaters should not set off along the canal unless they are willing to wait until 5.00 pm to pass through Lock 7. Boaters heading uphill should be aware that they will not reach suitable overnight moorings at Portland Basin until 8.00 pm or later.

This stoppage affects boaters doing the Cheshire Ring or the South Pennine Ring.

Any enquiries regarding this stoppage should be made to BW on 01782 785703.

Update 29th June:
The repair has been completed by lunchtime and the canal has now re-opened.
