Update on 14/07/2022:

Water levels continue to be low on the Ashby canal. 

We are working with our West Midlands team to divert water however the pound is extremely long and this will take some time.

The water valve has been opened at Hawkesbury junction on the Oxford canal to allow water onto the Coventry canal, which will in turn allow water onto the Ashby canal. Water is also being diverted from the River Swift to help with supply. 

Please continue to be mindful of low water and proceed with care. 

ADVICE (Monday 4 July 2022 until further notice)

We are currently experiencing low water levels on the Ashby Canal. This is affecting the whole navigation.

Colleagues are dealing with the situation and currently exploring solutions.

We will update the website when we know more.

Boaters are asked to be mindful and proceed with care.
