The whole river is now open for navigation and most hydraulic locks, although at present Self Service only, are on public power.
The EA are well advanced in installing safety measures at locks, such as barriers and signage, with the intention of restoring some level of assisted passage as soon as possible. We will update you as soon as we can but please observe current restrictions and see notices at locks.

Overnighting still not permitted
Staying on board overnight is still not allowed unless your boat is your primary residence. This is in line with Government guidance relating to relocating to second homes or caravans, and boats fall within this guidance. This will be reviewed as Government guidance changes.
