Due to exceptionally dry weather during the last three months some of our canal feeding reservoirs are lower than we would normally expect for this time of year.

The recent rainfall has not significantly changed this situation. As the dry weather is set to continue into the autumn, we are taking steps now to reduce water usage by closing the canal overnight.

The following locks will be locked shut: 1,12 and 17. Boats wishing to moor within the flight should only do so between locks 12 and 17. 

We will monitor the situation and update the website accordingly.
