400m U/S of Kegworth Deep Lock
Lock 56 – Kegworth New Lock

Update on 18/08/2022:

Our contractors were on site late yesterday and the tree has now been cleared.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (Tuesday 16 August 2022 until further notice)

A tree has come down on the River Soar and is located approximately 400m u/s of Kegworth Deep lock.

The tree is blocking most of the navigation and so we advise boaters not to travel along this section until the tree has been cleared.  

This has been raised as an urgent job with our contractors and we aim to get them out on site as quickly as possible. 

As soon as we have a time scale for the removal of this tree, we will update with website accordingly.
