Section of the Rochdale re-opens

Published: Thursday, 30 August 2018

THE recent rainfall has replenished the reservoir supplying the eastern section of the Rochdale Canal.

This means that Canal & River Trust will be able to re-open Tuel Lane Locks to Lock 34 tomorrow (Friday) morning, Keith Gudgin tells us.

Tuel Locks back to normal

But overnight closures will still be in force between locks 5 to 13 where the opening times will be 9am until 4pm every day. Tuel Locks however will return to normal operation.

However there is no winding hole at Lock 34, it being nine locks before!
