Repairs have been carried out by disconnecting the shaft making the lock operable on only one downstream sluice.

The opposite downstream sluice, we are hoping to have repaired by the end of next week.

We will update the notice when the full repair is complete

Description

The downstream sluice at Linton Lock has been wound up too tight to be able to be lowered. It will need to be disassembled to release it.

This has placed the lock as inoperable and is out of action.

We will update the notice when the sluice has been fixed and is operable again.
