NAVIGATION CLOSURE (2.30pm Friday 15 July 2022 until further notice)

Due to very low water levels impacting navigation between lock 29 and lock 30 this is now closed.

The low levels are due to an act of vandalism earlier in the week

The ongoing dry weather means that we are having to replace the lost water cautiously from reservoir sources  some distance away from this location. As such this may take some time. We apologise for any inconvenience.

We are monitoring the situation closely and will re-open as soon as we are able.
