Stoke Bruerne Flight closed

Published: Wednesday, 12 June 2019

Stoke Bruerne Flight on the Grand Union is closed to navigation.

Canal & River Trust state that this is due to an 'accidental boat collision', so the navigation had to be closed, Keith Gudgin reports.

Poor state of repair

The damage is to a gate on the bottom lock of the flight, but there is no intimation how this happened or what is the damage, but it is known that locks on the flight are in a poor state of repair.

No information is given of how long a repair will take.
