RESTRICTION (10am Friday 14 August 2020 until further notice)

Reservoir holdings in the South Oxford Canal are lower than usual for this time of year.
To maximise the available water, the Trust is taking the precaution of locking targeted locks up overnight. This measure is intended to reduce the potential for water losses overnight and allow back pumps more time to transfer water from the Braunston Pound onto the Oxford Summit.
Boaters also have a really important role to play and we ask that they help us to save water by making sure that all gates and paddles are closed after use, sharing a lock if possible and waiting for oncoming boats where appropriate.
The locks will be open between 10am to 5pm – 7 days a week
