Boats to be allowed to leave shut down section of the K&A Canal this week

Boats trapped on the shut-down central section of the Kennet & Avon Canal are to be allowed to leave and travel eastwards this week.

The 11.5 mile section of the Kennet & Avon Canal between Crofton Locks (60) and Copse Lock (80) was closed by British Waterways because they say there is insufficient water to keep it open. This has left some boats stranded and BW  will be letting boats through from Kintbury Lock (78) to travel eastwards this week. 

If you need to get out of the closed down section of the canal you will need to be topside of Kintbury Lock (78) at 8am on Thursday 15 December 2011.
