Navigational note for Manchester 18:

Canal & River Trust has a number of volunteer lock keepers working on the Rochdale Canal flight of 17, between Lock 65 at Failsworth and Lock 81 at Miles Platting. Although booking is no longer required on the flight, it can be hard work and a number of boaters have requested assistance. The volunteers are happy to help when they can. Their help is given voluntarily so assistance is not guaranteed, but if you would like help call 0303 040 4040 at least 24 hours before your planned passage (longer if possible) and we will try to arrange this with the volunteers. The lock keepers have all trained with the Trust and have excellent local knowledge which can really add to your experience of the flight. Please call us if you want to look into this, the more notice the better. While assistance cannot be guaranteed the volunteers are committed to helping where they can.

 
The nearest place in the direction of Ducie Street Junction is Oldham Road Bridge; 1 furlong away.
 
The nearest place in the direction of Littleborough is Failsworth Railway Bridge; ½ furlongs away.

Stoppage

Navigation closure notice: Rochdale Canal, Navigation: Closed, Towpath: Open
From: Failsworth Top Lock No 65 to Butler Lane Lock No 81.

Update on 13/06/2019:

Initial investigations have now been completed and a plan of repair has been organised. The gate will be lifted out and transported to our workshop to be repaired. This has been organised for the 17 June.

Whilst we repair the gate offsite, dams will be placed around the lock and the chamber will be dewatered. During this time, our teams will carry out repairs to the lock chamber and remove a build-up of debris.

We anticipate the repair and installation of the gate will take 2 to 3 weeks.

To ensure the safety of our customers, padlocks have been placed on Lock 81 and Lock 65 to prevent access on to the flight.

An update will be provided Monday 1 July.

Navigation is closed at Lock 66 on the Rochdale Canal due to the mitre post being split. Navigation will remain closed whilst we inspect the full impact of the damage caused.

An update will be provided once the inspection has been carried out by our local team.
