Please note the revised start date for this stoppage. 

We have reviewed the methodology and timings of the culvert and washwall repairs at Hurdsfield.  As a result, we are able to keep the navigation open until 6th January to allow people more time to complete their Christmas holiday cruising.   The end date of the closure is not affected.


A closure is required to carry out significant culvert and washwall repairs.
