Significant leakage has been identified at Lock 29 (Bumblebee Lock) and repairs are urgently required. 

In order to minimise disruption to users, the navigation closure at Lock 28 (Tythorne Lock) will be extended by one week.  This will enable the works at Lock 29 to be completed in conjunction with Lock 28..
