One Day Stoppage on Rochdale Nine Next Week

Boaters hoping to use the Rochdale Nine flight of locks through Manchester next Wednesday, 18th May, face delays as the locks will be closed for most of the day.

The pound between Locks 91 and 92, just above Castlefield, will be de-watered to allow clearance of objects in the canal to improve navigation.

The de-watering will start at 7.30 am and is planned to last until 3.00 pm. Navigation will be possible again after 5pm after the water level has been restored.

This stoppage will affect boaters navigating the Cheshire Ring.

Boaters who find that they will arrive at the Rochdale Nine next Wednesday should moor at either Castlefield or in the Piccadilly Basin area above Lock 84 and enjoy a day shopping or sight-seeing in Manchester!
