RESTRICTION (10am Monday 11 July 2022 until further notice)

We are sorry to advise that due to a rapidly developing reduction in water availability and a continuing dry forecast, we have taken the decision to restrict opening hours on the lock flights listed below on the Kennet & Avon Canal from Monday 11th July.

This will mean that the flights will be open between 10:00 and 16:00 daily and locked / out of service outside of these hours. 

It would be helpful if boating customers could avoid mooring in the flights and not run water through the system outside of these times without the supervision or direction of a member of Trust staff.

Please also follow the advice of any signage displayed locally.

These measures if followed, should help levels to recover overnight and extend the period before further restrictions may be required.

Gates at the following locations will be locked:

Bath Locks – 10 & 13

Bradford on Avon –  Lock  14

Semington – Locks 15 & 16

  • Seend  – Locks 17 & 21

The position will be reviewed on a weekly basis and this notice will be updated as new data becomes available.
