Navigation Restriction
Reason:
Water resources
Description:

Due to exceptionally dry weather during the last three months, some of our canal feeding reservoirs are lower than we would normally expect for this time of year. The recent rainfall has not significantly changed this situation. As the dry weather is set to continue into the autumn, we are taking steps now to reduce water usage by closing the canal overnight. This will allow backpumps to circulate water more effectively around the canal network.

The locks listed above will be closed between 6.00pm and 8.30am with last entry at 5.00pm.
