NAVIGATION CLOSURE (2pm Sunday 10 July 2022 until further notice)

Due to increased demand at the junction between locks 85 and 86 (Leeds and Liverpool) and lock 1 (Leigh Branch), there is currently insufficient water resource to allow boats to travel between these locks. 

The Leeds and Liverpool has been closed between locks 86 and 88, and lock 1 Leigh Branch to allow the pounds to replenish to a navigable level. 

An update will be provided by the local team on Monday 11th July
