The downstream pedestal at Lemonroyd Lock has developed a fault and will not accept a key, therefore it cannot be operated at this time.

The upstream offside sluice has also developed a fault. This means the sensors will not align and allow the sluice to close properly.

An engineer has been booked to attend on Sunday morning, the 18th July 2021, and an update will be given once information is recevied from site.
