Our contractors have been out to site and fixed the lock mechanism.  Methodist Swing Bridge 15 is now fully operational.


Due to a failure in the locking mechanism, the Methodist swing bridge 15, on the Leeds & Liverpool canal is currently unable to be operated.

Our contractors have been informed and we are waiting for them to attend site and will provide an update tomorrow afternoon.
