Unfortunately, members of our construction team, who were due to be working on this stoppage, are isolating under Covid rules. 

The stoppage has therefore been delayed and will now run from Saturday 28th November to Friday 18th December.  In order to complete the repairs in time for Christmas, the team will also be working on Saturdays. 

The navigation will remain open until the new start date.  

Thank you for your understanding in this difficult situation.


A stoppage is required to enable the replacement of the bottom gates.  There will be a window for navigation at Thorpe Locks on 14th and 15th November 2020.
