Please note that the Lock flights will all be closed on;

Christmas Eve

Christmas Day

Boxing Day

New Year’s Day

Ash Lock however will remain open, water levels allowing.

The Canal Visitor Centre will remain closed until the 10 January 2022.

The Canal office will be closed from the 24 December 2021 through to 4 January 2022.

If you wish to use the locks on any of their open days during this period, please ensure you have booked your passage before Friday 24 December 2021.

A reminder that we are currently holding the Hampshire pound (section of water between Greywell and Ash Lock) at minus 150mm to reduce the leak flow on Crookham Embankment until the repair works start in January. Although the navigation remains open, please note that some deeper drafted boats may have difficulty.

Just in case you didn’t see our social media update, the tree that had come down near Monument bridge in Woking has been cleared.

Our Duty Ranger will of course be on duty throughout Christmas and New Year should any emergencies arise. Please call the office number 01252 370073, where the answer machine will give you the emergency number to call.

Kind Regards
