Description

The top lock gates at Lock 42, North Lock on the River Soar are leaking, causing difficulty when opening the bottom gates.

When using the lock please open both paddles on the bottom gates from the offside and wait patiently for the water levels to equalise. This may take some time.

The local team are monitoring the situation and will carry out repairs as soon the work can be scheduled.

Boaters are asked to proceed with care.
