This will help manage water levels on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and will provide enough notice to coordinate our Huddersfield Broad Rangers who will be supporting us at this lock.

Please remember our advice - only move your boat if it’s essential (not for leisure purposes) and minimise your use of the towpath.

If you are not currently occupying your boat the government guidance is that you must not visit it (this means no short trips or breaks on your boat at this time).

Please follow the government advice – stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives.
