NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8am Wednesday 29 November until 4pm Thursday 30 November 2023)

We’re having to carry out urgent repairs at Curdworth Lock 7, to repair the offside ground paddle. There is an issue with the paddle coming off the rod, and also a problem with the paddle grooves. This is causing the lock to be very slow draining, meaning boats are having to queue for a considerable amount of time. An urgent repair is therefore required, as we would have to close navigation if anything happens to the towpath side paddle.

A two-day stoppage will take place on Wednesday 29th November & Thursday 30th November. If we are able to open navigation any earlier, we’ll update the notice.
