We are pleased to advise our engineers have been successful in repairing and filling the void on the offside of Lock 49, Barrowford Road on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and normal operation has resumed.


Please be advised navigation is currently restricted to towpath side paddles only at Lock 49, Barrowford Road on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal due to void in the offside embankment. Our local engineers have been to site to assess a method of repair.

We anticipate the repair works will start Monday 30 January.

To ensure the safety of our customers the offside paddles have been restricted and embankment is out of bounds with temporary fencing installed.

A further update will be provided Friday 3 February.
