Date for Gloucester Lock reopening

Published: Wednesday, 17 April 2019

WE NOW have a date for the reopening of Gloucester Lock after our telling of it being closed for over three months with a broken cill.

The lock is scheduled for reopening at the end of the month on Sunday 28th of April, Keith Gudgin reports.


It was closed on the 14th of January, and as we reported, with little work undertaken ever since, meaning many boaters stranded with no help from Canal & River Trust.

However, the stranded boaters can but hope that 11 days will be long enough to eventualy get a cill back in place.
