The footboard has now been fixed and normal usage resumed.


Due to a boat strike there is currently no footboard on the top gate at Lock 9 on the Atherstone flight.

We are in the process of ordering new timber to replace this and will update when the footboard has been attached.

Please take extra care when crossing this lock until the repairs have been undertaken.
