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 back-pumps to circulate water more effectively around the canal network.
We will monitor the situation and update the website accordingly.
Opening times for canal are 8am to 6pm.
