Four stoppages cleared

Published: Saturday, 08 June 2024

YESTERDAY, Friday, saw four stoppages cleared.

With their navigations then reopened, that were:

Stourbridge—with its Lock 3 ground paddle repaired.

Winkwell Swing Bridgethat would not swing but now will.

SevernDiglis Lane Lock repaired.

And of course Lock 11 on the Northampton Armwith a new lock beam.

Rufford Branch needs a scaffold tower to reach its failed paddle, so it and Lock 3 on the Calder & Hebble are both still closed for navigation.
