Works to fix the fault with the bottom offside gate, are planned to start on the 20th February.

We aim to have the works completed by the 6th March.




Due to a fault with the bottom offside gate, we have secured the gate in its closed position.

This is a temporary measure to keep the lock operational until the gate can be fully repaired.

As a result passage through the lock is restricted to a maximum craft width of 7’ 8”

Please enter or exit the lock using the towpath side bottom gate only.
