Published: Tuesday, 26 October 2021

THE Zouch Cut on the Leicester Section of the Grand Union is at present closed.

Zouch Lock (55) that takes the navigation off the Soar onto the Cut is yet another that is closed by a broken collar, Keith Gudgin reports.

Now inoperable

The broken collar has allowed the offside bottom gate to drop, with the lock now inoperable.

Though only the one gate is affected, such is the extent of the damage that has been caused the whole lock is out of action.

The operations team (a new name) was on site yesterday, Monday, making it all safe, with it now awaiting whilst the damage can be assessed.
