Navigation Closure

Following extensive damage to both sets of liners on the lock gates, emergency repairs are now required at Beeston Iron Lock to enable the safe operation of the lock during the summer period. 

Repairs will include replacing both sets of gate liners and the cill liner. The lock will need to be drained during these works to facilitate access to the gate liners. The towpath will remain open during navigation closure. 

The work will be carried out by our local Reactive Team who will endeavour to re-open the navigation as soon as possible.
