NAVIGATION CLOSURE (0.15am Tuesday 13 July until 7.30am Wednesday 14 July 2021)

To allow repairs to the upper cill at Lock 4, Longlees Lock, navigation will be closed between Salterhebble Bottom Lock and Woodside Mills Lock. The cill has become badly damaged over a period of time which is making lock operation difficult and affecting retained water levels above the lock.
The water level from Salterhebble Bottom Lock to Longlees Lock will be lowered to provide access to the cill to allow the repair to be undertaken. Below Longlees to Woodside Mills and below the Operations Team will be running excess water away as part of the water level management process during the closure.
If travelling upstream please moor in the Elland area or if going down stream moor in Salterhebble basin or above. Please do not moor between Salterhebble Bottom Lock and Woodside Mills Lock.
We do apologise for any inconvenience caused by this short but necessary closure to allow these essential repairs to be undertaken and completed.
