Rufford Branch closed

Published: Wednesday, 21 February 2018

A BROKEN lock paddle has closed the Rufford Branch of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

The closure means there is no access to or from the Leeds & Liverpool Canal to the Rufford Branch, Keith Gudgin tells us.

Only one working?

It is not understood why a single paddle breakage caused a closure, unless of course, there was only one working paddle of the pair on the particular gates.

There is no intimation when the repair will be undertaken.


Wednesday—the broken ground paddle has been repaired.
