Peak Forest canal closure

We are not traveling down the Marple flight but decided to find out what CART have deemed a safety issue. Note the spelling of Forest.
This wall leads into lock 7 and as you can see has collapsed. There is a narrow track running down here which might be to give access to a house or two or perhaps it might be just for maintenance access to the lock flight. Anyway part of it is now in the canal. The track has been diverted and a hard surface laid.
Boats were being helped up the flight today and BW will be back to help others through Monday.

So the top gate is padlocked and instructions left to phone Red Bull for information.
I would guess a lengthy stoppage will be needed to drain this pound to re-build the wall so be warned if cruising this way.
