The water levels have come down and the Environment Agency have opened their flood gates at Torksey.

Boaters can now travel along this section, but are asked to proceed with care.


Due to the flood levels rising and the current high tides, we have had to close Torksey Flood Gates. 

Boaters will not be able to get through Torksey Lock until further notice.
