Further to the notice below, we are further restricting opening hours of the Crofton Flight in order to conserve water.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and may need to reduce hours further as the summer progresses.

Description

Please be aware that we will be proactively managing water resources again this year, which will mean that Cadley Lock (54) and Crofton Top Lock (55) will close at 16:30 and reopen at 08:00 each day, between 1st July and 1st October. This will help us recover potential water shortfalls in our busiest period with the aim of preventing shortages. 

We will monitor levels continuously throughout this time and update this notice should further restrictions be required.

In the meantime you are welcome to contact us at enquiries.walessouthwest@canalrivertrust.org.uk  if you would like to discuss this information with a member of our Customer Service Team.
