Canal closed through lack of rain

Published: Friday, 30 August 2019

NOTWITHSTANDING the recent downpours where weeks rain came down in days, Pocklington Canal is closed through lack of water.

It is now closed at Thornton Lock (7) with Canal & River Trust stating that it is unable to maintain navigation from Thornton Lock upstream to Bielby Arm, Keith Gudgin reports.

Remaining closed

This came into force yesterday, Thursday, with  the waterway closed until further notice, with it remaining closed until the 'feed increases'.
