River Lock - opening times

This is a live notice. Please check the Canal & River Trust website for the latest information. View on Canal & River Trust website.


From Date:20/03/2023 08:00
To Date:On-going
Type:Navigation Restriction
Is the towpath closed?No


River Lock is struggling to achieve a level and is consuming an abnormal amount of water that on occasion leaves Granary Wharf basin above short of water, preventing onward navigation. To mitigate this in the short term we are restricting the operation of the lock to between the hours of 1pm and 3pm 7-days per week. The lock will be unavailable for passage outside of these hours. This will be reviewed by Friday 14th April 2023 when we hope to be able to offer a longer passage window each day.

In the meantime, our Engineering and Project Team are working to specify works and methodology for repairs to be undertaken later this year.
