Description

This notice is for customers who use the Remainder Waterway section of the River Severn from Gloucester down towards Sharpness.

Please can all customers be aware that the Partings (Eastern Channel) of the river below Gloucester Lock, and the Partings (Western Channel) of the river below Maisemore Weir is heavily encumbered with trees and other vegetation growing from both banks which obstruct the channel both above and below the water.

Operators of small craft should take into account the risk of entanglement of rigging and masts, the risk of fouling of propeller and rudder and the risk of entrapment of the vessel and crew recovery options when assessing the viability of navigation in these Remainder Waterway sections.

If you need any further information regarding this notice please do not hesitate to contact Gloucester Lock on 01452 310832 or VHF Channel 74
