Update on 15/06/2022:

Further to the notice below, we are further restricting opening hours of the Crofton Flight in order to conserve water.

From 16th June the flight will be available from 10:00 until 16:00 daily.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and may need to reduce hours further as the summer progresses.

You are welcome to contact us at enquiries.walessouthwest@canalrivertrust.org.uk if you would like to discuss this information with a member of our Customer Service Team. 

Original message:

Please be aware that we will be proactively managing water resources again this year, which will mean that Cadley Lock (54) and Crofton Top Lock (55) will close at 16:30 and reopen at 08:00 each day, between 1st July and 1st October. This will help us recover potential water shortfalls in our busiest period with the aim of preventing shortages.
