NAVIGATION CLOSURE (until 4pm Friday 11 December 2020)

Update on 13/11/2020:

Unfortunately, due to availability of resources during the current Covid situation, we are unable to commence work at Crofton Pumping Station this winter.

As a result, although we will continue with our stoppage in order to carry out repair work at Wooton Pumping Station and Lock 67, we will now be able to re-open the navigation from 11th December 2020.

We will also be deferring works at Bridge 109 until next winter, in order for additional repairs that have been identified to be planned and completed at the same time.

The towpath from Locks 58 to 61 will now stay open.  The navigation will remain dewatered at Lock 67 but normal water levels will be maintained in other areas.  Mooring restrictions will remain in place during the stoppage and no boats are permitted to moor between Locks 66 and 68 during this period.

We would like to apologise most sincerely for this change to programme which, sadly, has been unavoidable.  We realise the change may have caused inconvenience to local moorers.   If you have any issues regarding your mooring, please contact us on to discuss this with a member of our Customer Service Team.
