Description

Navigation closure on the Rochdale Canal in Hebden Bridge between Lock 9, Mayroyd Lock and Lock 8, Blackpit Lock.

The closure is due to low water levels in the pound. We are currently trying to recover the levels within the pound but the locks have been padlocked up to stop any use and further loss of water. 

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
