To Date: 30/10/2023 09:00 inclusive
Type: Navigation Closure
Reason: Water resources
Is the towpath closed? No
Closest waterway: Chesterfield Canal
Starts at: Lock 41A, Boundary Lock

Due to Covid affecting resources, an additional week is required to complete all planned activities at the Feeder Lock stoppage.
The canal from Boundary Lock to Norwood tunnel will now reopen on Monday 30th October, following completion of the stoppage.
Water resources have recovered and the canal will reopen on the 23rd of October.
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 Friday 1st September
We will continue to assess water resources and advise on reopening when supplies are sufficient to ensure boat passage.
