EA Thames have revised their winter stoppages:

'The reason for Issue 5 is mainly due to high water levels and Red boards on the Thames which have impacted on start times.'

Who could have predicted high flows and levels in the winter months..........................

Revised programme attached with nearly all works postponed to the New Year - Christmas boating secured!

I am pressing EA to return to their policy of opening as many locks as possible in the Christmas / New year construction industry shut down - they are looking at it!

Thames winter lock works are shown HERE

The Environment Agency publish this list of 7 locks for 'planning purposes' - theirs - not yours!

The notified start date is notional and currently there are no specific contractor agreed dates.

Last year none of the closures took place until the New Year which allowed continued cruising for nearly 3 months.

I will update as information comes available - and the website linked will be updated from time to time.

Dunning-Kruger continues to thrive in the Thames Valley.
