MORE woes indeed for the Ripon Marina boaters as once again access is cut off,

It's the closure of Oxclose Lock again preventing any boat movement to or from the marina, Keith Gudgin reports.

This time the closure of Belfurrows Lock that has resulted in a drop in water levels between Oxclose and Belfurrows locks that is preventing navigation.

The closure is to make sure the water level on the Ripon Canal is maintained, with a review of the situation on Friday.

It was Oxclose Lock that was closed for six months from December 2021 then closed again later for more months in 2022 as the repair had not been properly completed.
