Please be advised that preparation for imminent work at Caen Hill Pumping Station, means that we must delay the opening of Crofton Flight on Friday 21st April.

 Opening hours at Crofton for this one day, will be 14:00 – 19:00, after which we will revert to the times previously advertised.

 This is necessary because it has proved impossible to make the temporary pump connections we need at Crofton, with the flight in use. We appreciate that this late notice will inconvenience and delay some customers, and sincerely apologise for the short notice.

You are welcome to contact us at [email protected] or 03030 404040 if you would like to discuss this information with a member of our Customer Service Team
