Opening hours further cut on Leeds & Liverpool Canal

Published: Friday, 13 July 2018

THE opening hours of locks on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal have been further cut.

A total of 22 locks on the waterway have had their opening hours cut from being closed at 4.30pm or 5pm to now being closed to navigation from 2.30pm or 3pm, Keith Gudgin tells us.

14 miles under restrictions

These are from Holme Bridge Lock (30) to Bottom Lock (51), from Gargrave to Barrowford a total of 14 miles under restrictions.

The restrictions on these locks will start tomorrow (Friday) until further notice, caused of course by the lack of rainfall, with the locks not opened until 10am, giving around four hours boating a day.
