No GU access to or from Thames

Published: Friday, 12 January 2018

THE failure of Osterley Lock at Brentford on the Grand Union Canal means there is no access to or from the Thames.

Canal & River Trust report that the failure of the lock means that it will 'be closed until further notice', Keith Gudgin tells us.

No intimation

There is no intimation as to what caused the failure, only that it is being inspected by engineers.

As the Leicester Section of the Grand Union opens at last the 'other end' of the canal where it joins the Thames is closed.
