L & L - probable closure coming at Gargrave/Barnoldswick

Featured Posts

This pic shows what it's all about, really (Foulridge Lower Reservoir today).  90 percent of the picture should be water.  Where I'm standing is normally 4ft deep.

Incidentally, why is the proposed closure only as far as Gargrave?  Is there a different feeder below that? The new restrictions at Bingley are a bit worrying. I thought that once I got to Skipton I could relax and give it my full attention instead of this rather pressurised 'race against drought' boating.   Next thing the River Aire at Leeds will become too shallow to navigate or feed the A&C...........

Would anyone like to predict whether the Oxford summit may be closed within the next 4 weeks? 

I don't think so, there was more rain down here than up north. And they put restrictions on opening hours before a compete closure.

Many years ago we hired a boat on the L & L and our cruise was restricted by lack of water, a worker blamed the reservoirs sayine "they leaked like a sieve".
