The towpath will remain closed until further notice and our teams continue works to remove the fallen stone from the area.
An update will be issued tomorrow (17 April 2018).
The towpath is currently closed at Bridge 151 (Salterforth Bridge) on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal following a vehicle strike to the bridge which severely damaged the parapet. Some of the stones remain dislodged and our teams will be on site today investigating the damage.
An update will be issued later today.
