Please be advised that one paddle has been locked off at the bottom of Locks 5 & 6 on the Droitwich Junction Canal.

This measure has been put in place to reduce the water flow through the M5 Tunnel and allow for the required headroom for passage.

This will cause a small delay to the lock passage times. Please adhere to instructions and advice from local lock keepers, and Trust signage. If in doubt or you have concerns please contact us on 01452 318023 or enquiries.southwalessevern@canalrivertrust.org.uk

The Trust apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
