Please be aware that the Bath Flight (Locks 7 to 13) will be closed from Monday 19th November to Friday 14th December whilst the repairs to Deep Lock (Lock 8/9) bottom gates are undertaken.

Dates have been revised to make better use of our resources and allow our skilled construction team to work on both Bath Deep Lock and Caen Hill Flight stoppages.  

This closure at Bath Deep Lock 8/9 will now take place from 19th November to 14th December.  (Caen Hill Flight closure is programmed after Christmas.)

Please note, the replacement of the penstock has been deferred at present.  In order to significantly reduce water loss issues, work will include replacement of the towpath side timber quoin, replacement of the old cills, cutting down the mitre and re-fitting the gates.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change to our programme.
