TIDAL LOCK OPERATION IN THE EAST MIDLANDS

Two of our tidal locks (Cromwell and Torksey) have the same core hours, which are: 7:00am to 9:00pm in Summer (the earlier of Good Friday or 1st April to 30th September) and 8:00am to 4:00pm in Winter.

Cromwell will operate at all times within these core hours in summer and for 6 hours in winter except at weekends when it will be operated for 8 hours.  

Torksey will operate with the tides and shift patterns will be arranged accordingly to suit these, within the core hours. Typical shifts will be 6 hours in winter and 8 hours in summer. Occasionally we will operate Torksey slightly before 8am or slightly after 4pm in winter if there is a suitable tide and this will be recognised in shift patterns.

Any passage required outside of these hours should be booked at least 5 working days in advance through the office at Newark (0303 040 4040) and is subject to staff availability.

During winter Boston is managed by a booking system, and we ask for 5 working days’ notice, to allow for us to arrange for a lock keeper to be on site and is subject to availability.  Bookings can be arranged by ringing 0303 040 4040 and asking for the Newark Admin Team.  During the Summer, Boston Lock will operate for a maximum of 5 hours on any day, as passage is limited to specific windows of opportunity.  The actual hours of operation each day will be designed to maximise the opportunity to use the lock.

In an emergency, the out of hours call out number 0800 47 999 47 is available.

Actual shift patterns are published at the locks and on the notices section of our website.
