Due to a build up of silt behind one of the lock gates meaning it will not open fully, we can only pen narrowboats through Bank Dole lock at this present time.

Wide beam boats will not currently be able to pass through the lock.

We are waiting for one of our workboats to get to site and remove the build up, but this is dependant on the water levels reducing enough for it to reach the site.

An update will be issued when the boat is at the lock to carry out the work.
