Lock 6, Body Brook to Lock 7, River Lock on Droitwich Junction Canal

Update on 02/11/2021:

The navigations can now reopen as the River levels have reduced.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8am Friday 29 October 2021 until further notice)

Due to the canalisation of the River Salwarpe between these two locks and the heavy rainfall we have had over night and forecast for the next two days, we have had to lock off the locks to prevent boaters attempting passage whilst the river is in flood.

We will monitor the situation and open the canals once safe to do so.
