Lock 6, Stenson Lock

Update on 04/02/2022:

Safety improvement in works have now taken place at Stenson Lock. 

Our local team have designed a solution to create and fit a new bracket.

We will be following this improvement up with some additional works to clad the gates which will also reduce water loss and hopefully keep it running until the gates are replaced.  The replacement of the gates is hopefully planned in for next winter. 

Original message:

The bottom paddle, on the cafe side is currently out of action.  Unfortunately, it is not a quick repair and our engineers will need to attend site to assess the damage and plan the works in accordingly. 

Boaters can still operate the lock, but may experience slight delays. 

Please proceed with care.
