Saturday, 27. January 2018, UK, Johnson's Hillock Open Day

from 27. January 2018 - 10:00 till 16:00
12 people attending
Event description
Come visit us at our open day where you’ll be able to explore the bottom of the drained lock and get up close to the original Georgian brickwork.

You’ll also be able to learn about the history of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, which turned 200 years old last year, and how our team of experts used many of the same techniques to repair the lock as they did back in 1816.

Johnson’s Hillock flight marks the junction between the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and the Lancaster Canal and we’ll also have our history experts on hand to talk to you about the local area.

Please wear sensible footwear i.e. trainers or flat shoes. Dogs are welcome but will not be allowed in the locks. There will be a space to leave bikes and buggies. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult to go in the locks. Unfortunately, the lock is not suitable for wheelchairs.

THE WORKS
Johnson’s Hillock is a busy flight of locks along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, which last year had nearly 1,200 boats travel through it.

We will be replacing the top lock gates at lock 64 and the bottom lock gates at lock 61. Visitors will be able to walk in the drained lock chamber at lock 61 and see to the bottom of lock 64 from a viewing platform. The new bespoke lock gates will be made at our Stanley Ferry workshop in west Yorkshire out of British oak, and craned into place ahead of the open day.
