Macclesfield closed one week before season opens!

Published: Thursday, 11 April 2019

IT SEEMS that this year is going to be a duplicate of last year as far as the Macclesfield Canal is concerned—with long closures.

The Bosley Flight is already 'closed until further notice' one week before the boating season officially starts, Keith Gudgin reports.

Not a very good omen

This is not a very good omen considering the many closures last season on that canal, when it seemed to be closed more than it was open.

Once again it is a void that has been discovered behind a lock wall of Lock 3 of the flight, with of course the whole flight being closed.

There is the chance, we are told of a ' temporary solution to allow passage', but no details.
