Water levels - Chesterfield Canal


From Date: 12/08/2022 08:00

To Date: On-going

Type: Navigation Closure

Reason: Water resources

Is the towpath closed? No


Closest waterway: Chesterfield Canal

Starts at: Lock 41A, Boundary Lock

Ends at: Norwood Tunnel East Portal


Low rainfall and diminishing reservoir levels mean we have no option but to close the Chesterfield Canal from  Boundary Lock 41 upstream as we are unable to provide enough water to accommodate boat movements. The closure will commence on the 12th August. We will continue to assess water resources and advise on reopening when supplies are sufficient to ensure boat passage.
