Description

Please be aware that further to the period of exceptionally wet weather in recent weeks, very strong streams continue to be present along the River Kennet, between Guyers Lock and County Lock.

Accordingly, the River remains designated RED.

CAUTION STRONG STREAM

We advise users of all boats not to navigate because the strong flows make it difficult and dangerous (Locks may be closed)

As a further precaution, Fobney Lock (105) remains physically locked, due to there being no safe refuge or turning place beyond this point.

We will update this notice when conditions improve, but in the meantime, please contact our Customer Service Team on 03030404040 or email enquiries.walessouthwest@canalrivertrust.org.uk if you would like to discuss this notice.
