Bluebank Lock (3) - 20th to 22nd January
Derbyshire County Council, which owns this part of the canal, have arranged for Hargreaves Lock Gates to replace the top gate at Bluebank Lock.
The current schedule is for the lock to be prepared on Tuesday 20th January, to deliver and replace the gate on Wednesday 21st and to finish up on Thursday 22nd.
This is of course weather dependent.
Please note that the canal may well be closed for a longer period to allow time for the pound to empty and be refilled.


Weed warning - Between West Stockwith Lock and Shireoaks Marina - until further notice
As with recent years, we anticipate that we will again experience weed growth in this area over the next few months. Although weed boats will be actively removing this weed it is possible, especially if the weather is exceptionally warm and sunny, that boaters and anglers may be affected. Please be assured that we will do our best with the resource we have available to manage weed growth. 
Please do report any sightings of excessive weed growth in this area to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
Thank you for your assistance and understanding on this matter.

Morse Lock (49) - until further notice
The emergency repair works to the ground paddles at Morse Lock have now been completed and the lock is once again operational to boaters.
However, an obstruction has been found in the lock and consequently one of the ground paddles is not working.
Boaters can still operate the lock, but please be aware that delays will be experienced when waiting for the lock to fill up.
C&RT apologises for any inconvenience these delays may cause and asks boaters to be patient.
They aim to have this obstruction removed as soon possible and regular updates can be found on the C&RT website.
