ADVICE (4.30pm Wednesday 15 September 2021 until further notice)

Please note we are experiencing low water levels between Lock 41 to Lock 74 on the Trent & Mersey Canal. Our teams will continue to monitor and manage the water levels in the surrounding areas.

Please remember, boaters can help conserve water by:

  • Sharing locks where possible and making the best use of the water available.
  • Ensuring paddles are fully closed once they’ve passed through a lock.
  • Aiming for minimal contact when navigating through locks by ensuring gates are fully open as they pass through. Pushing gates open using a boat can damage the gate lining, increasing its leakage.
