TIDAL LOCK OPERATION IN THE EAST MIDLANDS

Two of our tidal locks (Cromwell and Torksey) have the same core hours, which are: 7:00am to 9:00pm in Summer (the earlier of Good Friday or 1st April to 30th September) and 8:00am to 4:00pm in Winter.

Cromwell will operate at all times within these core hours in summer and for 6 hours in winter except at weekends when it will be operated for 8 hours.  

Torksey will operate with the tides and shift patterns will be arranged accordingly to suit these, within the core hours. Typical shifts will be 6 hours in winter and 8 hours in summer. Occasionally we will operate Torksey slightly before 8am or slightly after 4pm in winter if there is a suitable tide and this will be recognised in shift patterns.

Any passage required outside of these hours should be booked at least 5 working days in advance through the office at Newark (0303 040 4040) and is subject to staff availability.

During winter Boston is managed by a booking system, and we ask for 5 working days’ notice, to allow for us to arrange for a lock keeper to be on site and is subject to availability.  Bookings can be arranged by ringing 0303 040 4040 and asking for the Newark Admin Team.  During the Summer, Boston Lock will operate for a maximum of 5 hours on any day, as passage is limited to specific windows of opportunity.  The actual hours of operation each day will be designed to maximise the opportunity to use the lock.

In an emergency, the out of hours call out number 0800 47 999 47 is available.

Actual shift patterns are published at the locks and on the notices section of our website.

Wikipedia has a page about River Trent

The River Trent is the third-longest river in the United Kingdom. Its source is in Staffordshire on the southern edge of Biddulph Moor. It flows through and drains most of the northern Midlands around and east of Birmingham. The river is known for dramatic flooding after storms and spring snowmelt, which in past times often caused the river to change course.

The river passes through Stoke-on-Trent, Burton-upon-Trent and Nottingham before joining the River Ouse at Trent Falls to form the Humber Estuary, which empties into the North Sea between Hull in Yorkshire and Immingham in Lincolnshire. The wide estuary is a traditional boundary between northern England and the Midlands.
