Two Leeds & Liverpool closures today

Published: Monday, 07 May 2018

TWO more closures on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal have been announce today, Monday.

Yet again a swing bridge is out of action, this time the powered Crabtree Swing Bridge (32) having no power, Keith Gudgin tells us.

Collars damaged

Leigh Branch is cut-off at Lock 1 at Poolstock, with Canal & River Trust stating that damage has been sustained to the collars on the head gate, but are blaming vandalism.


Both stoppages have been fixed, with the waterway now open.
