Please note that access to the Museum and café is not affected at any time. There will be no weekend working so the tunnel will be made available for visitor attraction purposes. 

Description

A stoppage is required. Third Party Contractors, working on behalf of the Trust, require a closure of the navigation to enable the installation of the new cabling from the portal entrance up to 121m. Although the canal will not be dewatered, a pontoon will be utilised within the tunnel at the Marsden end to facilitate the works.

Please note that access to the Museum and café is not affected. There will be no weekend working so the tunnel will be made available.
