Please be advised third party contractors will be onsite at the Mill Boundary Wall, Trafalgar Street on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to carry out essential works to the collapsed boundary wall of a third party owned building where a section of the wall has fallen within the canal. 

The collapsed section is within the canal and causing a navigation restriction to the offside of the canal adjacent to the mill (J G Coates) and will be removed using a long reach excavator.  The collapsed section will then be rebuilt to match the existing stonework. 

We politely ask our customers to take note of the signage, be prepared to wait if necessary and to listen to any advice that may be given by the third party contractors onsite
