Navigation Closure
Police Incident
Notice updates:

The scissor lift has been removed and the navigation is now open.

We are pleased to announce that the scissor lift has safely been removed and the navigation is now open.


Unfortunately over the weekend a piece of  plant, believed to be a scissor lift or similar, was stolen and has been driven into the canal at this location, totally blocking the navigation. 

We have not yet got a timescale for the removal but we will issue an update when we have more information.

Given that this may take some days to remove there is an alternative route via the Wolverhampton 21 locks if passage is required.
