Description

Please be aware that due to a new bulge in the chamber wall the lock width has been reduced slightly and may pose a hazard to some wider boats. The new minimum dimension is approximately 2.15m which is only just over 7ft (2.134m) and has reduced the amount of flexibility that boats have to manoeuvre within the lock.

The works to address the issue are being planned for this winter but in the interim period please take care when using the lock.
