Not a good day

Published: Thursday, 20 May 2021

IT IS certainly not a good day for boaters today with now three stopages.

This is in addition to the bad news about the Ripon closure but at least a glimmer of light with the news that the Macc could be open by the end of this month.

Lee Navigation closed

But now it's the Lee Navigation that is closed again, this time with the simple thing of a key broken off in a lock.

Old Ford Lock (19) is closed as a key has  snapped off on the electric pedestal control panel, prevening the lock working, Keith Gudgin informs us.

Canal & River Trust is aware of the problem and js attempting to remove the broken key.


The broken key has been removed and the navigation reopened.
