Please note the new start date for this closure.   

The paddle at Lock No 4, Thurnham, has been repaired without the need for a stoppage.  Meanwhile, additional surveying of Lock No 7 is required before work can begin to install stop plank grooves on the upstream and downstream side of the lock.   This will enable the further works to refurbish the tailgate and repair the cill to be carried out later in the year. 

The navigation will remain open until 3rd February when works on site are planned to begin.  The end date of the stoppage is not affected.


Lock 4, Upper Thurman:  Carry out repairs to the loose ground paddle frame on the offside.

Lock 7, Glasson Basin Lock: Tailgate refurbishment, cill repair and silt clearance.
