Reduced air draft - Rentons Bridge

Notice Details

The water levels have now returned to normal.


Due to the current dry weather we have raised the water levels of the Ripon Canal and therefore there is a reduced air draft at Rentons Bridge close to Ripon Motor boat club Marina. 

This will be ongoing until such time as the levels of water in the River Skell increase which is our source of water for the Ripon Canal.

Can skippers of large craft please slow down and approach the bridge with caution, checking the water level indicator on the side of the bridge to calculate the current air draft.

During the current dry spell, to conserve water resources on the Ripon canal, please share passage through the locks where possible.
