Further to the notice below, we are pleased to advise that dredging has been completed between Weston Lock and Bath Tunnel No. 1.


Please be advised that we will be dredging between Weston Lock and Bath Tunnel No. 1, to improve the Navigation and help water conservation in the short lock pounds of Bath Flight. Working practices have been amended in accordance with the current Government coronavirus guidelines, to enable work to proceed.

The Navigation and towpath will remain open, though boaters may incur short delays. Towpath users are requested to pass works with care, follow the advice of the crew and observe social distancing as necessary.

We apologise for any inconvenience and invite emails on  if you would like to contact our customer support team about this notice.

Please remember our advice - only move your boat if it’s essential (not for leisure purposes) and minimise your use of the towpath.

If you are not currently occupying your boat the government guidance is that you must not visit it (this means no short trips or breaks on your boat at this time).

Please follow the government advice – stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives.
