Downholland – Rimmer’s Bridge Damage Update

Following my posting of yesterday about the criminal damage to the bridge the latest news is that the bridge can be opened manually and it was today at 12 noon to let a large number of queuing boats through.

The top photo shows boats waiting to travel through to Liverpool, whilst the lower one is of boats waiting to travel north toward Scarisbrick marina etc.

My understanding is that the bridge will be manually opened each Monday and Friday. I’m not aware of the detail of the openings but I’m sure boat owners will be getting up to speed via the Canal and River Trust.
