The Met Office has issued Yellow Weather Warnings across Scotland for today, Friday 12th October, and into the weekend for high winds and rain. We anticipate that this will cause some disruption to boaters and members of the public and we ask that you exercise extra caution at this time.
The safety of staff, boaters and members of the public will continue to be our top priority and we ask boaters and other canal users to have patience and work with our staff where appropriate. We would also ask our boaters to check their boats and take any necessary steps to secure them along with any items that may be on or around them.
Please note that boat movements may be affected as vessels seek shelter and moorings spaces fill up – our local staff will be on hand to help manage this..
The Falkirk Wheel
If you are attending or planning to attend The Falkirk Wheel please note that it is possible that there will be disruption or cancellation to both boat trips and transits. Please call the visitor centre on 08700 500 208 before you travel, to confirm your booking.
Leamington Lift Bridge
Leamington Lift Bridge on the Union Canal may close to pedestrians and cyclists as a result of the weather. We will only take this action if required. In the event of closure, please use the alternative route and be cautious.
We appreciate your patience during this time.
