Due to the amount of rain we have had recently, the Locks on the Weaver Navigation are reinstated to the Summer operation times,  9:00 - 5:30  (Crafts are to arrive 30mins before closing time to ensure passage).

Following on from the timings stated below which are for week days, please note that lock passage times at weekends only are half past the hour, starting from 9.30am onwards.


As a consequence of the current dry spell and the long term forcast for dry weather, we are having to implement a water conservation strategy.  With this in mind there is a need to operate a times passage on the Weaver Navigation. The times of the lock passages will be as follows;
