Denham Lock deteriorated

Published: Friday, 29 November 2019

IT HAS been discovered that Denham Lock on the Grand Union Canal has deteriorated, and will remain closed until a 'short term' solution can be found.

Canal & River Trust has issued its third stoppage notice concerning Denham Lock (87), this time telling that the offside bottom timber heel post has a vertical split and is currently unsafe to operate.

Waiting boats

So the lock remains out of action though there is the possibility of a 'short term' solution to enable the waiting boats to get through the lock.

It was Les Collins who pointed out that with stoppage notices the original date of failure is now left out, but there have been three such notices concerning Denham Lock and the first two dates are now left out of this latest notice.
