Hot UK weather to cause closure of Leeds and Liverpool canal
All locks along 55-mile section of canal to be shut from 30 July because of a lack of water
A 55-mile section of Britain’s longest canal will temporarily shut at the end of the month as a result of the exceptionally dry weather.
All locks on the Leeds and Liverpool canal between Wigan in Greater Manchester and Gargrave, near Skipton in North Yorkshire, will be shut from 30 July. The towpath will remain open for walkers.
