'Winter Work' on Calder & Hebble

Published: Tuesday, 19 July 2022

THERE is a warning of the lack of water on the Calder & Hebble.

With boaters advised to take care around Salterhebble Middle (2) and Bottom (3) locks, Keith Gudgin reports.

Pound lowered

But the lack of water is not caused by the present lack of rain but by it being lowered to undertake a repair to the lower pound wall, with boaters getting the warning to 'proceed with caution through the pound'.

It is another case of cancelled 'winter work' now being done in the season!

It is not made clear how long the restriction will be in place.
