Additional work has been undertaken on the temporary repair to the culvert and now includes the placement of a weighted sheet on the canal bed. To help prevent the risk of this repair becoming damaged, we kindly ask that any boats navigating over the repaired section do so in neutral and drift over the sheet without operating the propeller.

This repaired section is approx 50m downstream of Lock 9 and is marked by orange fencing on the towpath side of the canal. 

We thank you for your support.


Contractors have completed a temporary repair on the leak in this pound.

Due to the design of this repair, please ensure you are navigating in the middle of the channel in this pound and on the approach to the lock 9.
