Between Lilford & Upper Barnwell Locks

Update on 08/09/20:

The Emergency Navigation Closure Notice between Lilford and Upper Barnwell Locks has now been rescinded and the tree has been removed.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (8am-12noon Tuesday 8 September 2020)

Owing to urgent tree removal works being carried out using cables
deployed across the watercourse, all navigation between Upper Barnwell
Lock & Lilford Lock will be temporarily suspended to ensure the safety of
both navigating vessels and our contractors.
During the stated times please do not attempt to pass Upper Barnwell or
Lilford Locks. Hold your position at these locks and alert our River
Inspector Ian Cook of your presence there on 07920087741.
You will be contacted once all cables and equipment have been cleared
of the watercourse and you are able to proceed.
However, vessels heading upstream from Upper Barnwell Lock and not
intending to pass past Lilford marina, may continue to their destination.
