Description

 Unfortunately, an issue with Lock 61 offside gate hinge is preventing both gates from being fully operable. 

Customer to only use the towpath side bottom gate and if they encounter any difficulties to contact the office for assistance.

 The lock is restricted due to this and can only be used by one narrowboat at a time. Our engineers are planning a repair to the gate, and we will be able to provide further details when they have finished their investigations.
