19/11/2021:  This Stoppage has been cancelled.  We regret to inform you that we have had to cancel the work and remove it from our winter programme due to the impact of arising emergency works elsewhere on the network.  We apologise for any inconvenience that this has caused. 


A stoppage is required to carry out some repair works.

Resin grouting will be put behind the lock walls to fill up any voids and prevent deterioration of the lock structure.
