Stoppages & Restrictions

Lock 7, Lemonroyd Lock

Update on 15/07/2022:

The lock gate ram has been repaired and refitted to the lock gate.

The lock is open and fully operational for normal boat use.

RESTRICTION (Until 3.30pm Tuesday 19 July 2022)

Update on 12/07/2022:

The fault has been identified as a failure of the offside upper gate hydraulic ram.  

The ram can not be repaired on site and will have to be removed to workshop for repair which may take some time to complete.  This means the gate can not be operated.

The lock is not user operable via the lock side pedestals and can only be operated from the control panel in the lock tower.

Lock Keepers will be on site to provide passage through the lock from 09.30hrs to last lockage at 14.30hrs each day until the lock is fully operational again.

Boat width is restricted to 11ft 6inches / 3.5m maximum.

Canal and River Trust apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.

This notice will be updated when there is new information to share.

RESTRICTION (12.30pm Tuesday 12 July 2022 until further notice)

Power to the offside upper gate has failed.  The lock is currently being operated by staff from the control tower.

The lock is only available to narrow beam craft and not large cruisers or wide beam craft.

Engineers are on the way to site to resolve the issue.
