Contractors have now completed the dredging works between Ickles Lock & Rotherham Lock.


A flood siltation bar has accumulated in the River Don navigation between Ickles Lock & Rotherham Lock.

Canal & River Trust have undertaken a hydrographic survey of the area opposite the New York Stadium( Rotherham United football ground) and we are arranging for dredging contractors to undertake the removal of the flood deposits in the area.

Can skippers of all craft please approach the area with caution and maintain their craft towards the towpath bank side of the navigation just off the centre channel.

A further update will be provided no later than 31st May 2021.
