The works to remove the Thorlby sluice are being delayed until after Christmas to bring the stoppage in line with other closures in the area and to allow additional time to safely complete the works.

Please note the new dates for this stoppage.


The Trust is removing the Thorlby let-off sluice in order to stop leaks into the surrounding fields.
