Following the recent rainfall, we are pleased to advise that as from tomorrow (19 September 2018), the Glasson Branch will be open as normal.

Although we are keen to take advantage of the recent weather to allow boating to restart in some areas that are currently closed, this is still a very dry period for the waterways and so we will keep the situation under constant review.  Please monitor our notices for future updates.

In order to maintain this opportunity we would appreciate that boaters wait to share locks wherever possible, close all gates and paddles and do not to empty or fill a lock if someone else can make use of the water.
