These dredging works have now been completed along this section of the navigation.


A build-up of sediment is affecting the navigation on the upstream approach to Ratcliffe Lock.

Dredging is proposed to be carried out to remove this between 21st and 24th September. 

The dates may vary, though the navigation will remain fully open. 

Boaters may experience short delays of no more than 1 hour when the dredger is operating near to the lock. 

Boaters are requested to pass the working area with due care and follow any instructions from the dredging crew.
