We would like to advise that an additional stoppage is required in our winter programme. 

The stoppage is required to carry out a refit and realign the bottom end gates which have been causing issues over the summer. There is an existing full closure at Wolverley until 17th February, so we have taken the opportunity to include these works to avoid any disruption during the summer months.

Please note that this stoppage will run until the 21st February meaning the navigation is closed for a short while longer.  

We hope that this change doesn't cause any inconvenience.
