The Marsden lock flight between L42E and L32E is prone to user error and is a significant source of water loss from the summit pound of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal.

To prevent unintended water loss the lock flight will be kept locked up, being opened on Tuesday's and Thursday's for free passage to coincide with bookings for passage through Standedge Tunnel.

Passage on alternative week days up and down the Marsden flight may be possible with prior notice, and we request that you enquire about alternative passage arrangements at the time of booking your transit through the tunnel.

We have a number of volunteers who may be available to provide assisted passage up and down the Marsden flight to coincide with your requirements. Please do enquire about availability when making your arrangements for passage.

Should you require further information, or to book passage through Standedge Tunnel, please call our Customer Services team on 0303 040 4040.
