Description

We are advising that any craft travelling downstream to Keadby Lock break the journey up and travel direct from West Stockwith Lock. This is due to low levels of fresh water in the Trent and a build up of silt in the mouth of the lock, causing issues with craft travelling from Torksey. Please seek advice from Keadby Lock Keeper to assist with planning your journey around the current tides and river levels to suit your style of craft.

Further updates to follow on dredging of the lock mouth and improvement of water levels.
