Opening Times

Navigation restriction notice: Leicester Line (Grand Union Canal), Navigation: Open, Towpath: Open
After a relatively dry winter, following on from last year’s exceptionally dry summer – one of the hottest and driest on record – reservoirs feeding some parts of the Oxford and Grand Union Canals have not refilled as quickly as would normally be expected.

Recent heavy storms have not been able to compensate for a continued period of below average rainfall that goes back to June 2018 and that has meant some reservoirs in this area have not refilled as we would normally expect. For example Naseby Reservoir, our largest reservoir serving this part of the canal network, started the season around 60% full.

In order to maximise the available water the Trust is taking the sensible precaution of locking targeted locks up overnight. This measure is intended to reduce the potential for water losses overnight and allow backpumps more time to transfer water from the Braunston Summit onto the Leicester Summit.

From the 6th May, lock opening hours will be: 9am to 5pm [last entry on the flight 4.15pm]

We will continue to monitor our reservoir storage and canal opening hours with a view to keeping disruption to a minimum whilst balancing a need to save water.

Boaters also have a really important role to play and we ask that they help us to save water by making sure that all gates and paddles are closed after use, sharing a lock if possible and waiting for oncoming boats where appropriate.  

For more water saving tips go to www.canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/boating/a-guide-to-boating

In the days preceding, during (25th to 27th May) and following Crick Boat Show opening hours will be relaxed to allow boat traffic to navigate to and from the event with minimal disruption.
