NAVIGATION CLOSURE (9am Friday 3 September 2021 until further notice)

Due to the continued drawdown of the reservoirs, the prolonged low rainfall and with the forecast for further dry weather, the Trust will be implementing temporary closures to navigation between Lock 1 and Lock 6 on Glasson Lock Flight from today. 

Glasson Flight will be padlocked closed, and the gates will be ashed up to reduce leakage. To prevent unauthorised use, measures will be taken to make the locks inoperable.
