Woodend Lock paddle repair

Published: Wednesday, 11 January 2017

THE Woodend Lock on the Trent & Mersey Canal will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, but boaters who use the lock will be pleased!

For at last the top gate paddle is to be repaired, Keith Gudgin tells us, which of course will not make it such a long process to get boats up through the lock anymore.

Out of action

As regular readers will know, as well as boaters using the lock, it has been out of action for some considerable while, so surely boaters will not mind the lock being closed for it to be repaired.

It was out of use all of last season, as the photograph was taken in May, and its plastic wrapping was far from new.
