Notice updates:

With immediate effect we are ending the overnight restriction.
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 6.30pm and 9.00am with last entry at 5.00pm.
