From Date:21/07/2021 00:00
To Date:On-going
Type:Navigation Restriction
Is the towpath closed?No


Due to a build up of silt and debris, the bottom gate is now at an angle, which is making passage through the lock extremely difficult.

We are advising customers not to operate the lock at this moment in time.

Our local team were on site yesterday trying to clear the debris and assisting boats through, but we unfortunately do not have the capacity to do this today.

This situation will be reviewed and as soon as we have an update on the plan of action for this lock, we will update our website accordingly.
