There is some restricted opening from 31st August.
Leeds & Liverpool Canal Starts At: Lock 30, Holme Bridge Lock Ends At: Lock 13, Newlay Top Lock
Friday 31 August 2018 10:00 until further notice
Type: Navigation Restriction
Reason: Water resources
As the recent rainfall has led to an increase in river flows which supply the East side of the Leeds & Liverpool canal, we are able to temporarily reopen the Leeds Liverpool Canal from Gargrave (below Lock 30) through to Newlay Locks (above Lock 13) under the following restrictions. If river levels recede again and pound levels cannot be maintained it will be necessary to consider a further closure.
At Bingley Five Rive & Bingley Three Rise, starting on the 31st August, passages will be restricted to the following times. Passage down in the morning will be between 10am and 12pm. Passage up in the afternoon will be between 1pm and 3pm. These timings will restrict the number of boats that can use these flights and this will be managed on a first come first served basis by the lock keepers. Please liaise with the lock keepers once you are on site.
We will continue to carefully monitor our water resources and update this notice as the situation changes; if the situation improves we will consider reopening the canal through to Leeds.
In order to maintain this opportunity we would appreciate that boaters wait to share locks wherever possible, close all gates and paddles and do not to empty or fill a lock if someone else can make use of the water.
