Virtual open day on Rochdale Canal

Essential repairs and maintenance work have been carried out at Blackpit Lock along the Rochdale Canal in Hebden Bridge as part of our £16m investment in Yorkshire and the North East.

As a result of an investigation into a leakage through the downstream gates, Blackpit Lock was drained for the first time in about 30 years. 

Explore our interactive picture, meet our experts and hear what we've been up to at Hebden Bridge.
