Cill bustedThe Leeds & Liverpool has been closed all week as the broken cill on the bottom lock of the Barrowford Flight failed last Saturday—the day after restrictions were lifted as Keith Gudgin reported.

But now that the scaffolding can be erected, work can commence and there is every hope the flight will be open for this week-end.

With no swing bridge failures reported, the whole waterway at present is open for navigation, with just the time restrictions on the Five Rise and Wigan flights.
