until further notice
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.
