Engineers from the Canal and River Trust yesterday replaced the lock gates on the canal, as part of a major project to restore the waterway between Huddersfield and Marsden, including repairing the canal walls. David Baldacchino, waterways manager at the trust, said: “The Huddersfield Narrow Canal is much loved but people may not realise that there’s quite a lot of work needed to look after it.” PICTURE: Scott Merrylees (SM1001/59)
