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 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.
