Lock 58 (Sam Farmer’s Lock), Crofton,
Thursday 29 July 2010 - Thursday 29 July 2010
Lock 58 (Sam Farmer’s Lock), Crofton, will be closed on 29 July 2010 between 0900hrs and 1500hrs in order to undertake repair work to the top gate.
Repair work is required to reduce the amount of water that currently leaks through the gate; this will in turn reduce the canal’s reliance on pumping water to the summit pound. Please note that the extended dry period has reduced water levels generally and although the canal is still currently navigable, your continued assistance in conserving water (for example by sharing locks) is very much appreciated.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by closing the canal on the 29th. Thank you for your continued support for the canal.
