Tree blocks canal west of Wigan

The Leeds and Liverpool Canal has been blocked by a large fallen tree near Bridge 46 at Gathurst, to the west of Wigan. The tree has also blocked the towpath.

The Canal and River Trust are hoping that contractors can clear the blockage during the weekend. An update will be issued on Monday 11th February.

Winding can be found below Dean Lock (Lock 90) to the west, or at Crooke or above Ell Meadow lock (lock 89) to the east.
