Broken Beam on the Welford Lock Gate.

In my Inbox this afternoon, I got this notice from CRT.

Notice Alert
Intersection of:

Bridge 42, Welford Junction Bridge to Bridge 42, Welford Junction Bridge on Leicester Line (Grand Union Canal)

and

Welford Marina - L5 Moorings to Culvert 1 on Welford Arm (Leicester Line)

Saturday 6 June 2015 15:00 until further notice

Type: Navigation Closure 
Reason: Repair

Lock 1 Welford Lock has been damaged, therefore the Welford Arm has been closed until an inspection can be carried out for the repair to the lock gate.

We will review this notice on Monday 8th June.

Keith walked up to the lock and this is what he saw.
As you can see the beam is hanging off. These gates are elderly and have been re-enforced a few times. This looks like a bigger job. We are not to worried as we have a lovely mooring in the Wharf and are waiting for our coal delivery anyway.

  1. I thought of you as soon as that stoppage notice came through! It looks rather likemwhatbhappened to one of the balance beams at the top of the Aylesbury Arm last year. it didn't actually take them that long to fit a new one -- so here's hoping you're not trapped for too long.
