Lockage can be defined as lock usage through the filling and emptying of a lock chamber. This allows the movement of water and the passage of boats. As well as the latest annual lockage totals for each of the sites included over the last three years, in each report you can see the most popular locations for boat traffic on our network, maps showing the average annual lockage by region, and the change in recorded lockage from the previous year.
