Wakefield Council’s Highway team they have advised that the wall has received substantial damage and the repair may take some time – months rather than weeks. They’re liaising with the Environment Agency regarding possible damage to the flood defence that is installed.

The wall will be repaired using the existing stone where possible with the addition of new stone approved by the Conservation Officer.
