North Stratford remains closed

THE lock gate coming out of its cup is not to be a quick fix but will take more days.

It was on Wednesday that the gate on Lock 17 on the North Stratford came away from its cup but the repair will take another 'couple of days', Keith Gudgin reports.

No reason

No reason is given for the delay that is obviously affecting boaters in the middle of the season, but it is suspected it is in the hands of contractors.

In addition the navigation is closed from Lock 2 to Lock 17 to reduce water levels.
