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.

Wikipedia has a page about Cromwell Lock

Cromwell Lock is a large navigation lock on the River Trent in Nottinghamshire, England. The first lock to be built on the site was constructed by the Trent Navigation Company, having been authorised by an Act of Parliament obtained in 1906. Construction began in late 1908, as soon as the Company had raised sufficient capital. The lock was extended in 1935, when an extra pair of gates were added downstream of the main lock, effectively forming a second lock. The lock was further improved in 1960, when the two locks were made into one, capable of holding eight standard Trent barges.

Cromwell Weir by the side of the lock is one of the largest weirs on the Trent and marks the tidal limit of the river. On 28 September 1975, during an eighty-mile, night navigation exercise in extreme weather conditions, ten members of the 131 Parachute Squadron, Royal Engineers were killed after a power failure caused the navigation lights on the weir to go out and their boat went over the crest. A memorial garden with a block of Scottish granite bearing the names of the men who died, lies next to the lock.

The site is defined by the Ordnance Survey as the nearest tidal location to Coton in the Elms in Derbyshire, which is the furthest point from the sea in Great Britain, 72 kilometres (45 mi) away.
