Canal stoppages


Between Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th May from 200 on 15th May to noon on 16th May, as part of British Waterways expansion in the coverage of its SCADA network a new measuring instrument has been installed at Bridge 92 Tramway Bridge between these locations on the Macclesfield Canal.

As part of the commissioning process BW require to undertake a series of scientific measurements of flows within the canal and in order to achieve this it is necessary to impose the above restriction so that Canal Boat and other craft movements do not interfere with the flows and cause inaccurate recording.

During these restrictions padlocks will be placed on lock 1,lock 12 and lock 13 to prevent operation.

Canal Boat and craft operators are please requested to follow instructions of BW staff.

BW also request that you do not attempt to remove the padlocks and or traffic through the section during the times shown above.

Canal Boat and boats moored between these locations are requested to remain berthed during the period.

Temporary mooring is available downstream of Lock 13, downstream of Lock 12 and upstream of Bosley Top Lock on the Macclesfield Canal.
