Please also note the latest update regarding the navigation closure at Lock 31, Eshton Road lock: Lock 31, Eshton Road Lock - Leeds & Liverpool Canal

Thank you for your continued patience during these works.


To coincide with the current navigation closure at Eshton Road Lock on the Leeds and Liverpool canal, we have taken the decision to conduct required works to other locks on the Bank Newton/Gargrave flight. 

This will involve investigation works on Lock 36 to check leakage to the cills and any other works that are required on the flight. 

Please note the nearest facilities to the west are located at Greenberfield and to the east, Skipton.
