The Best Laid Plans

We had all intentions of heading out onto the Trent this coming weekend for a quick trip to Laneham on Saturday evening to go for a meal in The Ferry Boat.

But it looks very much like the Trent has other ideas:

Notice Alert

Fossdyke Canal
Starts At: Lock 1, Torksey Lock
Ends At: Lock 1, Torksey Lock

Tuesday 22 November 2016 until further notice

Type: Navigation Closure
Reason: Water resources

Original message:

Due to the flood levels rising and the current high tides, we have had to close Torksey Flood Gates.

Boaters will not be able to get through Torksey Lock until further notice.

You can view this notice and its map online here:

So it looks like we will have to make other plans for the weekend unless the flood waters subside quickly and in time for them to remove the flood gates for the weekend, which seems unlikely given the amount of rain we had on Monday.
