Is Saltersford open or not?

Published: Friday, 24 March 2023

CLOSED since November last year there is some doubt about boat access at Saltersford Large Lock on the Weaver.

Satersford2The stoppage notice definitely states it is closed as work is being undertaken by contractors, so making the lock impassible, Keith Gudgin reports.

Open for bookings

Yet the notice also states it is open if booked in advance! 

There is no date given of its possible opening so it is not for future booking, and it is stated that the contractors will be on site for weeks, even though its completion date was a week ago on Friday 17th March.

So is it open or is it not?
