You've got to be joking???

Notice Alert

Leeds & Liverpool Canal
Starts At: Lock 30, Holme Bridge Lock
Ends At: Lock 85, Lock 21
Monday 26 November 2018 08:00 until further notice
Type: Navigation Closure 
Reason: Water resources

Original message:

Following a further period of below average rainfall, the water resource situation on the Leeds Liverpool Canal is such that we will need to close the canal from Holme Bridge lock, Gargrave (Lock 30) through to Wigan (Lock 85) on the 26th November until the New Year. This action is necessary because of the limited water resources currently available but more importantly to reduce the risk of the reservoirs not refilling in time for the start of the main boating season next year. During this closure we intend to offer windows of opportunity for boats to move and so the navigation will be reopened each Saturday and if the demand exists additional days can be considered.
This notice will be updated in the next few days with details of the openings.

Looks like we're NOT gonna get as far as Foulridge before we return to Skipton...  ergo, Skipton is the end of the line (AGAIN) for this year... hmmf!
