Stoppages & Restrictions

Ashton Lock downstream approaches

ADVICE (Monday 19 April 2021 until further notice)

Please be aware of a large gravel shoal forming at the backwater
inlet 10m downstream of the lock on LH side (looking DS). This is causing
issues, both when approaching from downstream and when exiting from the

Navigators are advised to keep well over to right hand side when exiting and to ensure the stern does not encroach onto the shoal. When approaching from
downstream skippers are advised to keep vessel well over to left hand side by the landing stage, again ensure your stern is kept clear of the shoal.

We apologise for this and ensure you that we are working to have this area
buoyed off in due course. Works are underway to remove this issue at the
earliest opportunity.
