Update on 29/06/2022:

We have repaired the top side paddle and will be repairing the off side paddle next week. In the meantime, we have placed some signs to Lock 5 to assist boaters to make their own way through and to operate the lock carefully, please can this advice be followed:

Please make sure to allow extra time when filling this lock. Only one paddle is working until we can repair it.

Type: Navigation Restriction 
Reason: Structure failure


Original message:

Due to an offside head paddle failure it is proving difficult to equalise the lock. To prevent water wastage this lock will now operate as assisted passage only during the hours of 9am to 3pm. Outside of these hours the lock will be chained up out of use. If you require passage during  9am and 3pm please call 0303 040 4040 and one of the local team will attend.
