  1. Diy every 2 years. 3 coats of Intertuf bitumen.
  2. Graham Thornton covers Cheshire and does ours or look on the boat safety.org site
  3. Probably a senior moment from me. The website date of the 20th is correct as the closure is for 2 weeks from Monday 9th March 2020.
  4. Blame the Great Crested Newts that keep getting in the way 🙁
  5. Excellent video, thanks for sharing it.
  6. The latest update is that the canal is open again but will still close again for 2 weeks in March for annual maintenance.
  7. Hi Liam All the canal was still in water yesterday including the section between Barton yard and the aqueduct and there was no sign of any work being done.
  8. No further updates as yet from the Bridgewater Canal Company. The "tank" has been swung stopping boaters on the Bridgewater Canal from crossing the Manchester Ship Canal. The canal has been blocked off near Lorenz's boatyard. Liam's video in an earlier post shows the problem and when I looked yesterday the water seeping through the bridge wall had flooded the road as well as the pavement. I did not see any signs anywhere on the canal warning boaters off the stoppage.
  9. Another update from the Bridgewater Canal Company. The canal will be closed again until further notice from Monday 17th February 2020 at 9.00am. After watching Liams video I suspect that this may be a long stoppage but I hope that I am wrong.
  10. New opening times have been announced for Frankton locks on the Montgomery canal for the summer months ( from 30.3.20 ). The locks will be open from 9.00am to 1.00pm daily and booking is necessary.
  11. The canal is to remain open until the weather improves. Info from the Bridgewater Canal Company.
  12. The canal will be open this weekend but will close again on Monday 10th February 2020 until further notice. Info from the Bridgewater Canal Company.
  13. Paul As far as I am aware all Bridgewater boaters who are on the Bridgewater Canal Company mailing list get stoppage emails.
  14. The canal will be closed near Barton aqueduct from 8.00am on Wednesday 5th February 2020 until further notice. As yet no reason has been given for the stoppage. Info from the Bridgewater Canal Company.
  15. Annual maintenance of the aqueduct means it will be closed from Monday 9th March 2020 to Friday 27th March 2020.
