NAVIGATION CLOSURE (2-6pm Tuesday 26 October 2021)

Magnetic fishermen appear to have recovered munitions of an unknown type from waterway.  Police are on site dealing with incident.

A short section of towpath leading from lock through tunnel under road is closed.  You can bypass the closure by crossing the road, taking care while doing so, and re-joining the towpath downstream of road bridge.

The navigation is currently closed to boat traffic from lock to approx. 50m below road bridge.

 The expectation is that the both navigation and towpath will reopen later today.
