Further to our advice notice regarding the leakage through the bottom end gates we have now got a proposed solution to rectify the problem. Therefore we will be closing the lock whilst this is implemented.

We appreciate that there may be boats moving for the Black Country Boating Festival, so apologies for any inconvenience caused, but there is an alternative route via the Brades locks.
