Low Water Levels - Stanley Dawson Lock


From Date: 04/06/2019 17:00

To Date: On-going

Type: Navigation Restriction

Reason: Water resources

Is the towpath closed? No


Closest waterway: Huddersfield Narrow Canal

Starts at: Lock 1 East, Stanley Dawson Lock

Ends at: Lock 1 East, Stanley Dawson Lock


Overnight between Monday pm and Tuesday am Lock 3E and Lock 2E were emptied and paddles were left up at Lock 1E, resulting in a massive amount of water for us to replenish.

Therefore it is necessary to introduce overnight restrictions from tonight until further notice.

Lock 1E will be padlocked overnight to give us chance to refill the pounds and prevent further reoccurrence. 

The canal will be reopened at 9am on subsequent mornings.

We will update this notice as necessary or if the position changes.
