Since the re-opening of the Wigan Flight; Lock 65 (Top of Wigan Flight) and Lock 85 (Bottom of Wigan Flight) on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, we have been carefully reviewing the situation of our reservoir holdings. Due to the sensitive nature of the flight and to oversee safe use, as of Tuesday 30 October 2018 we will be implementing the following restrictions;

8.30am – 10am to facilitate entry on to the flight 12.30pm – 2pm to allow exit off the flight

The above locks will be padlocked closed outside of these times.  Overnight mooring on the flight will be permitted only at Rose Bridge (between Locks 77 & 78).   Roving lock keepers will be on the Wigan Flight daily to oversee the passages and ensure the water levels are maintained.  This is not an assisted passage and staff will be around to help customers when needed. 

Full assistance is available for single handed boaters on Thursday mornings at 8:30am. Our Wigan Lock keepers can be contacted direct on 01942 405774 if you have any questions or want to report an issue on the flight.  Our Wigan Flight team will endeavour to help with any issues. Please bear with us as we may already be dealing with other urgent jobs.

Overnight restrictions will also be implemented at Poolstock Locks, along with Lock 88 (Pagefield Lock) to Lock 89 (Ell Meadow Lock).  These locks will be opened at 8am and locked at 4pm daily.

These restrictions will be in place until further notice.
