Stephen Hardy of Canal & River Trust explained:

"I’m sorry to say that, with high winds and heavy rainfall forecast, the planned public open days at Foxton Locks this weekend have been cancelled.  We’re really disappointed as we were looking forward to it but the safety of our visitors has to be the main priority.

"The good news is that we still have three more week-ends planned, starting on Saturday 22nd February, where people can see behind the scenes of our lock gate replacement works and walk down into a drained lock."
