Canal Boat - - News -

A £5.5m Her­itage Lottery Fund-backed scheme sup­port­ing the Bridgewater Canal and its sur­round­ings be­tween Manch­ester and Wors­ley has been de­layed by three years, but Sal­ford City Coun­cil has de­nied ru­mours that the money has been spent else­where. The Coun­cil says that the plans, which in­clude re­open­ing Wors­ley Delph (the en­trance basin to the Duke of Bridgewater’s for­mer un­der­ground coal mine canals) to boats and flood­light­ing Bar­ton Swing Aqueduct, will now be com­pleted in 2019.
