Atherstone Flight closed

Published: Monday, 22 July 2019

THE Atherstone Flight on the Coventry Canal is at present closed to navigation.

The top end lock gate collar and bracket has become dislodged and considered not safe enough to operate, Keith Gudgin reports.

Health and safety

Canal & River Trust maintain it has to close the flight as the breakage causes health and safety reasons, so the lock will remain closed until the gate collar is re-attached.

The flight will be chained and padlocked until the work has been completed.
