Sheffield Stoppage

Sheffield is currently cut off from the waterways network by a stoppage at Tinsley Locks on the Sheffield and Tinsley Canal.

British Waterways say that paddle sluices at Locks 7 and 8 on the Tinsley lock flight are 'inoperable', meaning that passage through the locks is not currently possible.

Repair works will start shortly and BW will issue an update on progress..

Any enquiries about this stoppage should be made to British Waterways on 0113 281 6860.

Update 12th August:
Works have now been completed. The flight will reopen as soon as water levels to return to normal.
