We have had confirmation that the water levels will begin to be lowered at approximately 9am on Thursday 8th and will be at the lowest level around midday. The water levels will lowered about 1metre.


The navigation will be closed between Castleford Lock and Lemonroyd lock and between Castleford Lock and Woodnook Lock. This is due to work being carried out to repair Castleford weir.
