Temporary closure of non-tidal Medway, 17 April

The Hampstead Lock to Sluice Weir Lock reach of the Upper Medway Navigation will be temporarily lowered on or after 17 April 2018. This is due to an unforeseen issue with the operation of Anchor Sluice which requires urgent attention. The EA do not anticipate that the work will take more than one day and they will reopen the river as soon as possible.

During this time no navigation will be possible in this pen and the EA will be temporarily closing Hampstead Lock and Sluice Weir Lock. The river level lowering will be subject to suitable river and weather conditions, and may be postponed if the conditions are not suitable. For further information please contact Allington Lock on 01622 752864.

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for the information, much appreciated. We do however intend to navigate from East Farliegh to Yalding and back over the weekend of 14th and 15th April.

    Can you confirm if we will have access without problems?

    • The closure is scheduled for 17th or later so you should be OK. I suggest you phone Allington Lock as stated in the notice to mariners.
