    Still shut on the L&L

    Yep, there's a couple of boats from our boat club that won't be coming back soon
  2. They've now decided to open a bit more of the canal, if only they'd do the same further west ! Notice Alert Leeds & Liverpool Canal Starts At: Lock 13, Newlay Top Lock Ends At: Lock 1, River Lock Wednesday 29 August 2018 13:00 until further notice Type: Navigation Restriction Reason: Water resources Update on 04/09/2018: Following further rainfall and the recovery of water levels, we are reopening the canal from the top of Newlay locks to River Lock tomorrow. Newlay to Kirstall locks will be open between 10:00 till 12:00 for downstream traffic and between 13:00 and 15:00 for upstream traffic on a daily basis. We will continue to monitor on a daily basis and will provide further updates accordingly. Original message: The canal remains closed from the top of Newlay locks to River Lock. 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.
  3. This is the latest update from C&RT about our canal, looks like no one is going anywhere from the 17th Notice Alert Leeds & Liverpool Canal Starts At: Lock 29, Bingley 5 Rise Top Lock Ends At: Lock 1, River Lock Friday 17 August 2018 08:00 until further notice Type: Navigation Closure Reason: Water resources Original message: Due to the continued drawdown of the river levels, the prolonged low rainfall and with the forecast for further dry weather, the Trust will be implementing temporary closures to navigation between Bingley 5 Rise Top Lock(Lock 29) to River Lock (Lock 1) at the beginning of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, commencing on Friday 17th August. The main lock flights will be padlocked closed at Bingley Three and Five Rise (Locks 22-29), Field (Locks 16-18), Newlay (Locks 11-13), Forge (Locks 8-10) and the gates will be ashed up to reduce leakage. Additionally to prevent unauthorised use, measures will be taken to make all the locks inoperable within this section. It’s not clear how long the closure will last for but it’s likely to be throughout August and potentially beyond if there is no significant, sustained rainfall. While the closure will prevent use of that stretch of canal by boats the towpath will remain open for visitors and the local community alike to enjoy. The canal will remain open between Holme Bridge, Gargrave and the top of the Bingley 5 Rise Locks, approximately 20 miles

    Leeds and Liverpool - Longest UK Canal?

    It might be 127 miles long but from next Monday I can only use about 3 miles of it ??

    Leeds & Liverpool possible closure..

    This as already been discussed in a previous topic but there's no IF about it, we've all been informed from a week on Monday we're not cruising very far and the hire boats will be all going the other way from Skipton.

    Leeds & Liverpool Closed For Cruising

    There's another topic re the Leeds & Liverpool closing under Stoppages
  7. C & RT have now put time restrictions on Bingley 3 and 5 Rise, we won't be able to go anywhere soon unless it rains. Original message: Due to the continued drawdown of the reservoirs, the prolonged low rainfall and with the forecast for further dry weather, starting today, the Trust is restricting opening hours daily at the following locations: · Bingley Five Rise and Bingley Three Rise Locks will be restricted to passage at the following times; passage down in the morning (between 8am and 12pm) and passage up in the afternoon (between 1pm and 5pm). The lock flights will be padlocked closed at 5pm. Please ensure that you enter the lock flight with sufficient time to get through, noting the last passage commencement times above. Moorings are available at the top and bottom of the flights. We will continue to monitor the water resources and updates will be issued should the situation change. Please follow the guidance given by representatives of the Trust or on site signage.

  8. Original message: Due to the continued drawdown of the reservoirs, the prolonged low rainfall and with the forecast for further dry weather, the Trust will be implementing temporary closures to navigation between Wigan Flight (from below lock 85) and Gargrave (from below lock 30) commencing on Monday 30 July. The lock flights at Wigan (locks 65 to 85), Barrowford Locks (45 to 51), Greenberfield Locks (42 to 44), Bank Newton Locks (36 to 41) and Gargrave (Holme Bridge Lock 30) will be padlocked closed and the gates will be ashed up to reduce leakage. To prevent unauthorised access though vandalism, measures will be taken to make the locks inoperable. It’s not clear how long the closure will last for but it’s likely to be throughout August and potentially beyond if there is no significant, sustained rainfall. While the closure will prevent use of that stretch of canal by boats the towpath will remain open for visitors and the local community alike to enjoy. In the meantime, boaters can help conserve water by: Sharing locks where possible and making the best use of the water available. Ensuring paddles are fully closed once they’ve passed through a lock. Aiming for minimal contact when navigating through locks by ensuring gates are fully open as they pass through. Pushing gates open using a boat can damage the gate lining, increasing its leakage. An update will follow with FAQ. You can view this notice and its map online here: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notice/13480/leeds-and-liverpool-canal Just received this from C & RT well that makes our 10 days off in August a short cruise, just how far is it from the top of Barrowford to the top of Grenberfield

    Leeds and Liverpool (advice appreciated)

    I take it you're with Bear Boating, lovely boats but if you're looking for a quiet holiday then definitely turn left out of the marina and then you'll be going through Shipley, Saltaire, Bingley (3 rise locks and then the 5 rise locks), and then a run with no locks just lots of swing bridges through to Skipton. It's a nice run all the way through to Skipton with plenty of places to visit depending on what you're looking for. Dave

    If you've got the time then sail it home, we bought a boat from Mercia some years ago and cruised up to Skipton, had a great time Dave

    Advice on Sawley to Anderton

    We did most of this trip a few years ago and really enjoyed it, the only scary bit for SWMBO was as stated above at Arlewas, the river was quite high but apparently safe to proceed but she didn't like it at all and just remember to duck in Harecastle tunnel.

    Weekend from Silsden to Saltaire

    Hi, You'll be better off staying at Bingley , at the top of the 5 rise on Friday night, then going down the 5 rise and onto Saltaire on the Saturday, Moorings at Saltaire aren't great but you should go through Saltaire and turn round just before Shipley, come back to Saltaire to moor for the night. we usually go back towards Hirstwood lock and moor near the cricket club. I'm sure you'll have a great time, we've done this trip a few times when we used to moor at Kildwick, Any more questions just ask Dave
