Opening Times

Navigation restriction notice: Leeds & Liverpool Canal, Navigation: Open, Towpath: Open
From: Barrowford Bottom Lock No 51 to Wigan Lock 21 No 85.

Update on 03/05/2019:

We have continued to experience a prolonged period of dry weather in the reservoir catchment area, which has resulted in higher than normal drawdown from the reservoirs, for this time of the year.  We have reached the point where further restrictions are required, which will be implemented from Friday 17 May.  These are as follows;

Johnsons Hillocks - Open at 10am, closed at 5pm, last entry 4 pm Blackburn Locks - Open at 10am, closed at 5pm, last entry 4 pm Barrowford Locks – Open at 10am, closed at 4pm, last entry 3pm Greenberfield Locks – Open at 10am, closed at 5pm, last entry 4pm Bank Newton Locks – Open at 10am, closed at 5pm, last entry 4pm Gargrave Locks – Open at 10am, closed at 5pm, last entry 4pm

Wigan Flight - Lock 65 (Top of Wigan Flight) and Lock 85 (Bottom of Wigan Flight) to be open to customers as follows:

8:30am to 9:30am to facilitate entry onto the flight 12:30pm to 1:30pm to facilitate exit from the flight

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates in the coming weeks. While the restrictions will restrict the use of the canal by boats, the towpath will continue to remain open for visitors and the local community alike to enjoy.

In the meantime, boaters can help conserve water by;

Sharing locks where possible and making the best use of the water available. Ensuring paddles are fully closed once they’ve passed through a lock. Aiming for minimal contact when navigating through locks by ensuring gates are fully open as they pass through. Pushing gates open using a boat can damage the gate lining, increasing its leakage.

Due to the low rainfall which has resulted in the drawdown of the reservoirs, and with the forecast set for dry weather, the Trust will be implementing temporary restrictions to navigation between Barrowford Locks (45 to 51) and Gargrave (from below lock 30) effective Monday 29 April.

Barrowford Locks – Open at 8am, closed at 5pm, last entry 4pm Greenberfield Locks – Open at 8am, closed at 6pm, last entry 5pm Bank Newton Locks – Open at 8am, closed at 6pm, last entry 5pm Gargrave Locks – Open at 8am, closed at 6pm, last entry 5pm.

It’s not clear how long the restrictions will be in place, however if there is no significant, sustained rainfall it is likely further restrictions will be implemented. While the restrictions will restrict the use of the canal by boats, the towpath will remain open for visitors and the local community alike to enjoy.

In the meantime, boaters can help conserve water by:

Sharing locks where possible and making the best use of the water available. Ensuring paddles are fully closed once they’ve passed through a lock. Aiming for minimal contact when navigating through locks by ensuring gates are fully open as they pass through. Pushing gates open using a boat can damage the gate lining, increasing its leakage.
