During narrow lock gate replacement works customers are advised to use the Wide Beam Locks to access Stourport Basin or the River Severn. The Wide Beam locks will only be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 9am to 3pm and will be operated by staff members/ volunteers. Staff will be based in the Stourport Office located at the top of the Wide Beam Lock.

Customers can moor up and wait in the Top Basin, or use the pontoons, if coming up from the River Severn, when waiting for access through the locks.

For emergency access outside of the scheduled dates, please contact West Midlands Enquiries on 0303 0404040.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
