Description

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister (8.30pm, 23 March 2020) regarding the UK’s response to the coronavirus crisis, we are asking leisure boaters to stop all non-essential travel and not to visit their boats if they do not live aboard permanently.

This means that passage through Foxton locks will be limited to essential movement to reach facilities or relocate, and will only be available on a booked basis.

Please contact us on 0303 040 4040 or by emailing enquiries.eastmidlands@canalrivertrust.org.uk to arrange passage for essential travel only.

Please note that passage will only be possible Monday to Friday between the hours of 11:00 and 15:00. You must book by 16:00 the day before you wish to travel through the locks.

We are keeping our response to this crisis under constant review and may change our position according to latest government advice.
