Stoppages & Restrictions

Starts At: Lock 69 – Potters Lock
Ends At: Lock 64 – Pastures Lock

Update on 23/12/2021:

Boaters can now proceed with care, as water levels have started to come back up, but please be mindful that the levels can fluctuate.

As we seem to be going through a spate of vandalism and lock gate paddles being left open, this does mean that there is a chance that the water levels could drop back down again.  However, the team are monitoring the situation closely and are doing all they can to maintain the levels for our customers.  

We will update the website if there are any more changes and please do proceed with care.  

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (Thursday 23 December 2021 until further notice)

Due to continued vandalism on the Erewash Canal, the water levels have dropped between Potters Lock and Pastures Lock.  

Consequently, boaters cannot currently travel along this section. 

Our local team have been on site since first thing this morning, and are doing all they can to get the water levels back up as quickly as possible.  

We will update the website as soon as we have more information.
