The bookings for Lock 1E will commence from March 17th 2023. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal East (Lock 1e to Lock 42e) is closed until 17.03.23.

We will open up the online booking system 72 hours before the navigation is reopened.

We will issue a notice when the booking system is live.


Due to the delays that have been encountered by the emergency culvert repairs that had to be undertaken to Lock 21e and Lock 20e, we are managing any build-up of passage requirements through Lock 1E, which is especially susceptible to low water levels.

We will be locking up Lock 3E and for any passage booked through Lock 1E, you will now be assisted from/to Lock 3E also to help conserve water levels on this stretch.
