North Stratford Canal closed

Published: Friday, 19 April 2019

THE North Stratford Canal is closed at  Lapworth Flight.

No specific details have been given for the closure that came into force yesterday (Thursday) only that it concerns Lock 6, Keith Gudgin reports.

Wrong restriction

All we are told is the gate is not operable, with the restriction starting and ending at Lock 6. However, as Lock 6 is the top lock of the flight and there is no possibility of winding within the flight, surely the restriction should be from Lock 6 to Lock 24—the bottom lock of the flight.


The gate has been attended to and the waterway re-opened.
