Stoppages & Restrictions

Hunts Small Lock, Northwich


Update on 25/01/2021:

Further delays with the manufacture of the new gates and current flooding issues means we expect to require an additional 10 days to complete the works at Hunts Small Lock.  As a result, the stoppage will be extended until 8th February.

NAVIGATION CLOSURE (until 4pm Friday 29 January 2021)

Update on 24/11/2020:

Unfortunately we have encountered some unforeseeable issues with the manufacture of the new gates which will cause a delay to the completion of this stoppage.  Please note the revised end date.

Additional quadrant repair work will now also take place whilst the navigation is closed.

Original message:

A stoppage is required to enable replacement of the bottom leaf gates and replanking of the upper leaf gates.

Stop planks will be installed to lower and raise water levels in the lock to facilitate the works.
