We are pleased to be lifting the navigation restriction on the Marsworth Flight. This is due to improvements in reservoir levels and effective working of the temporary pumping system. A permanent replacement pump is being sort.
08/02/2018 @ 13:22

The temporary pumping system is now installed and working effectively.

Reservoir levels are still low so the current restrictions will remain in place

08/12/2017 @ 13:23

The temporary pumping system planned for installation at Tringford is expected to be operational before the New Year.

 Reservoir levels remain low and the refill has been minimal due to lack of rain.

 The current restrictions are to remain unchanged at this time

08/11/2017 @ 08:50

This restriction will extend to lock 46, Cowroast Lock.


Due to a pump breakdown we are needing to carefully manage water resources and restrict navigation on the Marsworth flight between lock 39 to Lock 45.

The navigation will be open from 11am to 4pm, with last entry into flight 2:30pm.

Updates to be provided as work progresses on temporary pumping installation and the reservoirs refilling and the towpath will remain open
