NAVIGATION CLOSURE (10am Monday 11 April 2022 until further notice)

The pound between Lock 20e and Lock 21e  has become extremely low water levels due to a culvert leak. There is currently no feed as both Lock 20e and Lock 21e are low resulting in the pound between Lock 20e and Lock 19e being empty.

The pound between Lock 20e and Lock 21e will need to be completely drained to find and attend to the problem.

We will update the notice when we receive further information regarding the cause and a solution is made
