RESTRICTION (8am Monday 18 July until 5pm Wednesday 27 July 2022)

To conserve our water resources in this continuing hot and dry weather, we’re having to prioritise the supply to key routes.  Unfortunately this means we’re having to restrict use of the eastern end of the Caldon Canal, to maintain water supply to the western end and the Trent & Mersey. 

From Monday 18th July we will be restricting the use of Hazelhurst locks.  You’ll be able to pass through on Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd July, and then Wednesday 27th. It will be a great help if you can make plans for any movement of boats around these dates.

After this date passage along the eastern Caldon will be closed until there is a significant improvement in water levels.  We’ll continue to review this, particularly in light of the planned autumn closure of this section for bridge replacement works, and will provide updates as soon as they are available.
